For those who are new to the wonderful world of cross stitching, welcome dear kindred spirit! 😀 Why do I think cross stitching wonderful? Because there are many, many, gracious and kind cross stitchers out there who are ever ready to share their experience, tips and patterns with everyone who are interested, especially with beginners.
Cross stitch for beginners may be daunting, at first, but as we learn the tips and tricks, we will eventually have our own cross stitching tips, tricks and stash that we can also share with others. And among the things that you can get for free are cross stitch patterns. Let me share with you among my favourite sites.
Where To Download Cross Stitch Patterns
I think the most fun and exciting site for FREE download of cross stitching patterns is Cross Stitching.com. There are more than 100 free cross stitch patterns available for you to pick and stitch. I really love the charts and the trendy designs such as this cute Sew Delightful Sewing Machine and the lovely cross stitch alphabets Floral ABC.
Wouldn’t it look nice if framed and proudly hung on the wall of your craft room?
A complete chart of all the alphabets are ready for you to stitch.
To download these and other fun and quirky free patterns at Cross Stitching.com, you only need to register.
There are hundreds of cross stitch patterns for download in Ann’s Cross Stitch Pattern and they are alphabetically listed in her gallery, from Africa to Zodiac signs. If you love life-like designs such as this Cosmetics then you must check out her patterns. But there are also cute designs in here such as this Blue Bird.
Cross Stitcher not only provides trendy, fun and quirky free cross stitch patterns for download but also free download of backing paper and other crafts as well, such as embroidery templates, and so forth. However, the photos on the page and the design in the chart given are not always the same. See below.
If you fancy a whimsical design with inspirational captions to adorn your favourite wall, then Lizzie*Kate free cross stitch patterns might just delight you.
I hope you’ll have fun looking at all the absolutely gorgeous and free patterns. Do share if you know of any other wonderful sites with free patterns.
p/s : Our dear wonderful new mom, Nia, is so astute and really checked out the above sites that she has correctly pointed out that the Lizzie*Kate designs in the picture above is not free – only the borders are. Sorry, everyone…. But please don’t be disappointed, Lizzie*Kate’s other designs such as ‘Whatever’, ‘Bloom’, ‘Spooky Time’, etc, are still available for free. 😀 Thanks a million, Nia! 😀
