I've been using the ALBC Historic Rare Breed Animals cross stitch patterns. I stitched the Dominique hen and rooster on the front of a denim jacket, and the Light Brahmas on the back.
For a friend's Christmas present, I stitched the Mammoth Jackstock on a pillowcase. There aren't many people who would appreciate a donkey, but I knew she would. She has a donkey who looks a lot like this one.
Because pillow cases come in pairs, I stitched the American Bronze Turkey on the second one. She and her husband can take turns.
I use waste canvas to make it possible to stitch any design on to any fabric.
