Looking for a birthday cross stitch pattern or a Cinco de Mayo cross stitch pattern with lots of bright colors? Inspired by Mexican cross stitch, I designed this fun piñata donkey cross stitch with a wavy rainbow texture, perfect for parties and birthdays. Just don’t break it open as this cross stitch piñata pattern is very unlikely to contain candy, unless you are a fan of eye candy (great for the waistline!)

A cute cross stitch, the piñata hangs by a black string (the only backstitch to do in the project) and 9 DMC floss colors are needed to create the rainbow effect and effectively, a party cross stitch at your house. Pinata embroidery has never been so exciting – it looks great on the wall, I already stitched it up to show you, and you can see how bright it is in my photographs. There are no half stitches in this birthday animal cross stitch pattern and the finished needlework fits perfectly into a 6” embroidery hoop when stitched on 14 count Aida.

This is a pretty easy project if you mark off the stitch chart with a text as you go.

If you want the frame to look like the one in the photo, please purchase my frame wrapping tutorial separately, for complete step-by-step instructions in a full colour photo PDF pattern. You can find it here:
