Cross Cross Cross Dot Dot Dot

These dotted butterflies are part of the Power Animal series designed by Amy (aka GirlFlamant). I absolutely love each and every pattern of that series! All animal silhouettes have their own pattern and include a fleur-de-lis owl and an houndstooth patterned Jackalope.  I'm about to start stitching a tartan Loch Ness monster! Find all Power animals (and other patterns as well) in her Etsy shop.

If you have not tried Counted Cross Stitch before (I'm very much a newbie myself) do check out the wonderful (and free!) downloadable Cross Stitch guides by Sophie of What Delilah Did. And don't forget to have a look in her shop with many gorgeous kits and patterns as well!


  1. You know I like about them...beyond the x-stitch that you have to use your imagination to see the animals, yet you get pattern, design and variation of colors that you'd wouldn't normal associate with an animal. Almost a twist on us humans using leopard in a skirt on our bodies. LOL

  2. Thank you so much for featuring a few of my cross stitches and etsy store! Happy stitching everyone!!

  3. love the butterflies! what a neat idea!

  4. I love the combination of animals and fabric patterns ! The Loch Ness Monstern dressed in tartan is irresistible !
