Magical Carpet Menagerie #8 Model stitched on 18 ct Aida hand dyed by Jessi Mislaid Pages using Sulky 12 wt. Cotton in Med. Navy (1197)
Part of the Magical Carpet Menagerie Collection was inspired by motifs found in Gabbeh, a hand-knotted rug mainly made by nomadic people of Iran. Gabbeh is often knotted without pattern and inspired by individual’s everyday life experiences as well as their imagination. I've always been fascinated by the weird and wonderful animal motifs in Gabbeh and decided to share some of them with you as cross stitch patterns in this collection.
You'll get a pdf copy of the pattern including a one page version and 2 page version
