There’s an Easter theme to Crafty Colour Palette #3 which is inspired by my favourite Easter treat – mini eggs! I realised a while ago that mini eggs have a lovely colour palette. The dark purple speckles on each of the eggs has to be my favourite bit – just a hint of it on each egg. I actually took some photos last year to be able to make something, and I never got around to it! But when Hannah from Hannah Handmakes got in touch to ask if I wanted to do a blog post swap for Easter, I knew that this would be the perfect colour palette for my project. A lot of mini eggs were eaten during the process of planning and making these hoops and writing the posts, haha! 🙂
Crafty Colour Palette #3: Colour list
Pink: DMC 3689 / Anchor 49
Yellow: DMC 745 / Anchor 300
Blue: DMC 775 / Anchor 128
Lilac: DMC 211 / Anchor 342
Dark purple: DMC 3041 / Anchor 871
These colours would work so well for Easter projects, but you could use them for anything you like! I think they would be lovely for something for a nursery – maybe a name banner or hoop. I quite like it for something gender neutral in this sense, with the pink and blue together I think it would work quite nicely!
Hello! Hooray! for Hannah Handmakes
These are the hoops I designed for our little blog post swap 🙂 If you saw my post earlier with Hannah’s amazing tutorial, you’ll know that I basically had two designs in my head and I couldn’t decide which one would work best! If I had to choose I’d probably pick the text only version because I’m so pleased with how that worked out.
If you’re a beginner cross-stitcher (like me), Hannah takes us through the stitching process step-by-step. So it’s great for beginners, and a fun design for all levels too! We really hope that you enjoy these Easter projects – tag us @hellohoorayblog and @hannahhandmakes on Instagram 🙂 Happy stitching!
