My favorite part of Spring is probably the tulips blooming. Such a simple flower, but somehow also elegant and bold. Here’s a round-up of 10 of my favorite tulip cross stitch patterns that I came across while pattern shopping.
Delft Tulips Cross Stitch Bookmark from Textile Heritage
7½” x 2½” cross stitch kit contains chart and instructions for completing the bookmark, needle, 15 count Aida band, tassel, and stranded cotton threads.
Dreaming of Tulips from Rosewood Manor
This 10-page booklet includes 10 minis and several “Be Creative” ideas, so each motif can be stitched individually or all together. Sampler layout is199 X 199 stitches.
Watercolor Tulips Cross Stitch Pattern Set from Green Terrace on Etsy
The three tulip designs can be stitched individually or together depending on how you’d like to display them.
(I confess that purple tulips will always grab my attention over the others)
Dance of the Tulips from Glendon Place
While the design is charted using 7 colors of Caron Waterlilies and 3 colors of Mill Hill Beads, you could certainly swap those out for cotton threads if you don’t enjoy working with silks and/or beads.
