Cross stitch this adorable swashbuckling penguin, complete with pirate cap, wielding a sword with a parrot perched on its shoulder, based on artwork by Moini at openclipart.org. The pattern includes instructions, thread requirements, key, and symbol chart for 12 colors of DMC embroidery floss. When stitched on 18-count Aida, the final design will be 5.5″ x 5.2″. This pattern uses only full cross stitches.
Patterns come in three different formats: a digital PDF file that is available immediately for download to your computer, a printed paper pattern that will be mailed to you, or a full kit including all the materials needed to complete your project. Kits include a printed copy of the pattern, DMC floss presorted into a floss organizer, tapestry needle, and Aida fabric. Note that there may be a short delay in shipping of kits (usually about a week), as I will need time to assemble them.
My patterns are created using a combination of image editing software, cross stitch conversion software, and hand correction. The image you see uploaded here is an exact preview, stitch for stitch, of what your final piece will look like. If you zoom in, you can even see the individual cross stitches.
BONUS: If you complete this project and send me a photo of it that I can post as an example in my shop, I will give you a free pattern (downloadable pdf version) of your choice!
