Free Pattern Friday – Geometric Arrows

geometricarrows

I went through a big geometric cross stitch kit a few years back. Most of them I would do without a pattern and I loved how little I had to think about it, it was so repetitive. I have a box with dozens of them. The finished cross stitch is only about 3" x 5" but you could continue repeating to make it as big as you want. Whenever I do rainbow for my cross stitches I just grab any colors I have in that shade. Usually I'm lazy and pick whatever is already cut and split into three strands!

Free Pattern Friday – Coffee Love

coffeelove

I am relatively new to the coffee drinking scene. Somehow I managed to survive the first three years of Evie's life without coffee. But now things are different, it didn't take long for me to become a "don't talk to me before I've had my coffee" person. My Tea Love cross stitch pattern is consistently my most popular, so I figured I would expand the caffeine love to coffee. When stitched on 14 ct Aida the final piece is about 5.5" so it should fit into a 6" hoop. Download the PDF here – Coffee Love Cross Stitch Pattern There are more free patterns to ... Read More

Free Pattern Friday – Tiny Cross Stitches

I had an idea awhile back to make a series of tiny cross stitch patterns. My initial thought was that they could go on a hexagon, but they're so tiny you could stitch them on almost anything. Each of these are only about 1.5" when stitched on 14 ct. Aida.

Free Pattern Friday – Miniature Pinscher Embroidery Pattern

I got an email from someone asking me about making a miniature pinscher pattern to go with my cat embroidery pattern. She had stitched up the cat (check it out, it's super cute!) and wanted to make another for her miniature pinscher. I haven't stitched it up yet but I think it turned out pretty cute!

The finished piece is a little over 4"x5" when done on 14ct Aida and would fit nicely in a 6" hoop.

Free Pattern Friday – Bethlehem Star Quilt Block

quiltblock

I've always loved the look of this block and have seen it called both a Bethlehem Star and the Swoon block. It's on my list of quilt blocks I want to make, but until I finally do it, I'll have to settle for this cross stitch pattern version. Between this and my Alternating Stars pattern, I really want to make a huge cross stitch quilt sampler so you can expect more of these! When stitched on 14ct Aida the block will be 5″ square.

Free Pattern Friday – Saturn

saturn

Last summer I did a post for the &Stitches Summer Bloggin' series on stitching with LEDs. I stitched up Saturn and used the LEDs for stars. I was going through some old files this week and came across the pattern and realized I never shared it. I'm not 100% sure what colors I used but I think it might have been some of these - DMC 840 DMC 841 DMC 842 DMC 648 DMC 729 I'm not always the best at remembering to keep track, sorry! Use your best judgement, I'm sure it'll be fantastic. When stitched on 14ct Aida it's roughly 5x4". Download the PDF here – ... Read More
