Both patterns were cross-stitched on burlap fabric (I have a big piece of fabric in my stash, but you can try Ebay) - I think the red thread is my favourite. I used 3 strands of thread in each case - but the red looks fuller somehow. Or I may be biased towards that pattern - it is definitely my favourite out of the two.
I am not a cross-stitched expert and I have not got any software to transcribe the design onto an electronic pattern sheet, but I reckon you should be able to work it out from the pictures (and do a hand-written pattern as I tend to do). However, if you know any free pattern making software - let me know, and I will be happy to transcribe everything!
I am really happy with my progress - at this stage I am not sure whether to add another pattern and another thread to my ornaments - or just keep it at two colours, two patterns... I went through my Embroidery Pinterest Board again and I saw so many patterns from last year that I like that I may just have to add another pattern.
