Cat on Rooftop Pinkeep & Tutorial
CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Marie-Anne Rethoret-Melin
This cute little pinkeep features a cross stitch cottage with a big fat ginger cat perched on the roof.
Photo is actually the original french version. The text around the piece in the English version goes:
"Keep your pins tucked inside
And I will keep them handy"
This is a perfect gift to stitch for a friend.
A quick and easy cross stitch project that will look very cute once finished. Seed beads can be added creating "flowers" on the stems of the plant to embellish the stitching (featured on the chart).
The cross stitch chart also includes a tutorial with step by step photos for making the pinkeep.
