Bring some light into your child’s bedroom, playroom, or any room with this modern cross stitch pattern from the Oh Happy Day Collection. Using only 3 colors, lots of fun motifs, and bold backstitching, this sun will add some cheer wherever it’s hung... and maybe cause a certain song to start playing in your head.

This is a digital PDF cross stitch pattern, which means it will be available immediately after purchase (yay!). Watch for a downloadable link sent to your email after your transaction is complete. You can print it on your home printer (or at a copy shop), or view it on your favorite digital device.

Gathering Supplies

All the supplies needed are listed in the pattern. Purchase them from your local craft store, or via the web. Below, I’ve shared two of my favorite online shops.

And yes — these are affiliate links. Using them won’t cost you anything extra, but if you do you’ll be helping to fund my tea habit (a crucial part of my creative process). So thank you! 🙂

All your project materials for this pattern (fabric, embroidery floss, hoop, and needles) have been lovingly curated for you (by me!) into a Maydel bundle. It’s basically a kit that you can customize, or purchase as is. The other awesome part?
