Announcement: New Line in Shop: Miffy / Nijntje!

I am incredibly excited to announce the new line in my shop: Miffy / Nijntje!

Miffy is a beloved character from a series of children’s books by Dick Bruna.  Her name is Nijntje in Dutch.  I discovered Miffy on Netflix one night, and immediately fell in love.  She’s such an adorable little bunny, and her stories are wonderful!  Their availability in dual-language apps are also helping me on my side-quest to learn Dutch.  When I discovered a shocking lack of Miffy cross stitch patterns, I made my own so we could hang a version of her in our living room.  I decided to make BOTH the patterns and the completed products available for all Miffy fans to enjoy.  The picture on this post is just of my personal favorite design, Miffy’s Garden / De Tuin Van Nijntje.  Please click through to my shop to see all five designs!

PS I am now shipping completed items to The Netherlands and the UK in addition to the US! Patterns are available worldwide.

ETA 3/5/15: I have now closed my Etsy shop, but I’ve made my patterns available on my Cross-Stitch page.

Cross-Stitch #7: Look of Disapproval Emoticon

February 16, 2014 Leave a comment

My final holiday cross-stitch was a present for my partner’s other sister.  (He has two.  The youngest one got pixel Thor).  This sister is a journalist and a fan of emoticons.  I thought it’d be fun to make her something small that she could hang in her office, maybe.  Something that would both display her personality and be semi-related to work.  I decided to stitch her the look of disapproval emoticon face and frame it in a classy hoop.  Framing items this small is easiest with semi-flexible plastic hoops.  I chose one that was made to resemble wood.

I enjoyed the final look so much that I was inspired to do an emoticon line in my shop.  If you like the look of disapproval, you can buy a completed one from me.  Although, the version I am selling is hooped in a red hoop.
