Pattern Description:

Before I became obsessed with all things cute I used to be a real retro girl....and I still am!

This listing is for the Retro Orange and Brown Wallpaper design

It is a fully repeating pattern so great to use for cushion covers, rugs and wall art etc.

In the photo I have stitched the design onto tapestry canvas using ordinary knitting wool and with a half stitch. Then I have simply stretched it over an artists canvas with a little padding behind it. Looks very striking on the wall.

I would love to see the pattern as a rug or cushion!

This pattern is suitable for both cross stitch and tapestry/needlepoint as the pattern is based on a grid system with one square equalling one stitch.

You can stitch on any size aida/canvas that suits you.

You will receive all the details you need to start stitching including a full colour chart, key, notes on fabric size and quantity of thread etc

I have included the DMC colours as a reference but of course you could easily change all the colours and any combination would look fabulous.

Check out my shop for other great patterns.

Please note this pattern is for personal use only and is not for resale.

However feel free to sell complete projects using this pattern - it would be great if you could include a credit to and I would love to put photos of your completed projects on my blog - just convo me if you are interested.
