Yarn Cross Stitch Retro Deer

I fell in love with this pattern/kit years ago and finally tracked it down. It is 16x16 and will definitely become a pillow.

That is so sweet. I love the color scheme, too. Definitely worthy of becoming a pillow.

So freakin cute!

OMG I love it! That is the sweetest little deer, and the colors are great.
What size Aida cloth did you use for the yarn, and what weight yarn, do you know?

Thanks all! I am so happy with the way it turned out.

It came from a kit but if you wanted to do something like this, the canvas is that type that you use for rugs. The yarn is just acrylic yarn. I have wanted it forever! I thought it was no longer available and I found it. Vervaco makes the best yarn cross stitch kits. The canvas is painted and it is literally a cross stitch paint by numbers. They give you everything and you just stitch it up. After doing a couple of these, I think I am going to try to do my own patterns on this type of canvas with yarn.
Here is the kit:

That’s just the sweetest!

Gotta love these old school kits! Second one you’ve made recently, right? This is how I learned cross stitch back in the days.

Yep! I’ve made 3 so far.

Cute. I’m learning to know your style and most often guess it’s your project before looking who posted it.
