Adorable Animal Motifs For Filet Crochet or Cross Stitch

Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail …….

….. and Peter brought some friends with him too!  All of these sweet filet crochet or simple cross stitch patterns come from a couple of vintage 1921 pattern books with designs for children.  These are similar to others that I've posted but it seems to have been a theme of the times.

First up, the rabbit family:

A lion; a turkey for a sampler, kitchen motif or for a Thanksgiving Day project; and little tin soldiers for a little boy's room:

A dove or blue bird, this would be cute in baby's room:

A simple repeat pattern good for a baby pillow or guest towel edging:

I think the top is a bear, but I'm not sure what she's doing; an adorable elephant pattern; and a classic pig motif for an animal sampler or country home:

 A deer that would be perfect on the corners of a throw pillow for a cabin in the woods:

Love this elephant pattern!:

A cute and easy squirrel pattern:

And of course, storks for baby's room:

There were so many patterns in the two books that I was looking through today that I've split them into two groups.  Today's offerings are the animals.  Up next will be children, baby lettering and sailboats….. stay tuned and keep on stitching!
