This neon Christmas cross stitch pattern has been specially created for us by pattern designer Alice Apple. Inspired by the colours and shapes of 1960s and 70s textiles, Alice's work is playful, fun and bright. We caught up with her for a chat about her creative inspirations.
Please could you tell us a bit about yourself and your business?
I come from a very creative background - my father was a jazz musician and my mother taught me lots of craft skills from a young age. I eventually graduated from Derby University with a BA in textile design. A number of years later I turned my redundancy from a boring office job into a positive by launching my own Etsy shop.
