Adorable 3D cross-stitch characters that you can make yourself at home

in Inspiration / Crafts

Ukraine designer Olena Kovalenko makes the most adorable little festive ornaments and textile home decor via her Etsy shop Living on the Rainbow, and she even provides the patterns you need to craft your own.

From little soldiers, pirates and chefs to drums and carousels – we especially love the Christmas tree decorations. And the patterns include all the instructions you'll need to make something unique for your home this winter. (There are 18 weeks left until Christmas, by the way!)

If you don't fancy a little crafting, then Olena's range of seasonal decorations for Easter and Halloween might appeal. Or you might prefer one of her miniature teddies or microwavable heating dolls. Check out her latest stock on Etsy.
