My wonderful friend BGDino sent me a very fun cross stitch kit in her last package… a dinosaur! It looks exactly like her mascot so I couldn’t wait to give it a go 😀


The contents included a cute little hoop for display as well 😀VioletLeBeaux-Dinosaur-Cross-Stitch-182_14560VioletLeBeaux-Dinosaur-Cross-Stitch-183_14561Half way through I decided that I wanted to go a slightly different direction to the pattern and give it a more pixel-art feeling with a thick black border and by following the squares rather than diagonal curves.


So funny, the instructions were very explicit in how many threads to use warning you not to run out… I ran out anyway XD Luckily I had the exact same green in my stash already!


My finished dinosaur!


I added in the stripy long stitch background and I’m thinking I should totally deco the frame with some green jewels, what do you think?


Love it! Thank you very much Dino! Such a cute little dinosaur and he’s living on my dressing table now 😀
