As I posted about before, I really love Hamtaro- the Japanese Hamster character (and my love has only been further enhanced by Steph sending me a lovely big cuddly hHmtaro in the post :D). I also just really like Hamsters in general too, I think they are lovely and interesting creatures. For this reason I wanted to do some hamster related crafting! I looked online for different cross stitch patterns but was surprised to find there were not that many :( The ones there were were good but not quite what I wanted so I just got out my threads box and made up this simple little design myself:
It was really fun making up the different patterns on the hamsters, I have more ideas for cute patterns and designs to try/to try them in different colours :)
I thought I would give the chart for the above hamsters just in case anyone wanted to stitch a few/ experiment with their own designs for the little guys :-)
Here it is:
You can use the picture of my finished cross stitch in the picture above for extra help/reference if needed- the diamond shapes are french knots and the dots are just normal cross stitches (use two strands of thread for all)
I hope you like the chart and are having a lovely weekend!
See you again soon,
