Two Ducklings cross stitch pattern is a replica of a vintage woodblock print by Dutch painter and graphic artist Julie de Graag. It was part of a series of four ducks (created between 1923 and 1924).
These two little ducks sharing a worm make a cute cross stitch. We just love the artist’s minimalist approach and ability to create personality and emotion with just a few simple shapes.
Even better the project only requires one thread colour — white. Stitched on black Aida cloth, Two Ducklings cross stitch is sure to brighten up your favourite wall space, canvas tote, or eco-bag.
Julie de Graag lived between 1877 and 1924 and painted in the Art Nouveau style. Her paintings and drawings focused on everyday subjects like domestic pets, farm animals, insects and spiders — as well as leaves, flowers and people of the village.
Her work was defined by thick outlines and a minimalist colour palette (very often just black and white). Browse the store for more Art Nouveau designs by Julie de Graag.
This pattern is Part 1 of the Retro Duck series — a set of four matching charts replicating Julie de Graag’s original woodblock prints.
