Tiny Cardinal Ornament

I started this little ornament last summer, but put it away and forgot about it before I finished stitching it.

I pulled it out this week and finished it in a short amount of time.  The pattern is a freebie, available at Kissy-Cross. 
It’s cross stitch over one with one strand of cotton floss on 28 count linen. I used a rectangular plastic form to make the ornament, stitching the two sides together with invisible thread.  I’ve used the round ones before but this was the first time I used this shape. The finished size is about one and a half inches by two inches. I made the twisted cording with #5 perle cotton.


  1. How cute is that, looks great all finished too!

  2. So elegant, and with that fantastic cording finish. You will need a huge Christmas tree this year!

  3. Lovely little ornament.
    Have a nice weekend, Manuela

  4. This is very pretty. The stitches are so small.
