In CrossStitcher issue 250, we're going all out for cute spring-like designs to banish those February blues and these adorable animal cards (inspired by the technique of patchwork!) are no exception.
You can use your leftover threads to stitch these little characters up and get creative with brown paper and string to give them a rustic finish. Perfect for patchwork fans and animal lovers alike.
You'll find an owl, hedgehog, snail and tortoise on pages 74 - 77 of CrossStitcher issue 250 - on sale until 20th March.
If you can't wait to get started, you'll be pleased to know we've got this caterpillar design you can download for free!

Don't forget to send us photos of your finished designs or share them our facebook page and Flickr group.
