Helen Philipps works up a springtime gift set with a novel twist

Got the stitch itch? We’ve got just the project for you! This embroidered Easter trio would make the perfect gift for a kiddie’s birthday, but do be careful of the buttons. Our advice is: if in doubt, replace with thread - simply sew little round circles or flowers instead of any easily-swallowed embellishments. Helen’s project is also a great one for newbie stitchers as her designs are small-scale and super easy to follow. Once you’ve got your confidence up, why not adjust the dimensions and work up the cute leaping bunny as a wall hanging? You could even sew the little tot’s name and birthday underneath the rabbit for a personal touch.

Give Mother’s Day cards a folksy feel with our cute designs

The fabled Matryoshka doll is the inspiration for this gorgeous paper crafted set designed by Cathie Shuttleworth. In Russia the dolls are made from wood and nested inside each other in decreasing sizes. The first one is usually a woman dressed in the classic sarafan, a long and shapeless peasant dress. The figures inside can be male or female, the smallest and innermost one being a baby worked from a single piece of wood. The dolls often follow a theme, aside from the typical peasant girls we are used to seeing, to fairytale characters or Soviet leaders. So, get your scissors at the ready and design your own take on this quintessential Russian classic.

Bright bunches of anemones are a spring time delight, and here to celebrate the season are some cross-stitch patterns inspired by the charming flowers. These designs have so many uses; a pretty lavender-filled fabric heart, a charming card to send to a friend and a sweet tag to make your packaging bloom. Present them individually or as one charming set.
