Wish friends and family an egg-cellent Easter with these colourful quick-stitch Easter cross stitch cards worked in pretty pastel shades.Painting eggs is a wonderful Easter tradition rooted in ancient times.


We love the idea of sitting around the kitchen table and joining in with this yearly custom, be it decorating a hard boiled egg or stitching one of Maria’s beautiful Easter cross stitch patterns. Each card showcases a different style, including an assortment of delicate eggs in pretty hues.

Using just a few thread shades, the charts are worked mainly in whole cross stitches, with one featuring a backstitched sentiment that is easily interchangeable throughout the set. They're a great introduction to stitching for beginners, so why not share your skills with someone new this Easter by making a start with an Easter cross stitch pattern? You'll find more advice for starting out stitching in our cross stitch for beginners article.
