You have time on your hands, and the to-do list may not include, make something cute, but it should. I enjoy needlepoint ( cross stitch) and embroidery. Have you ever made hoop art? The hoop is your frame! Today I am sharing Free Needlepoint Patterns ( you can also use them for counted cross stitch too)! When my mother taught me how to needlepoint we used embroidery floss and weavers cloth ( or muslin) whatever was available and within our budget.
If you don’t have the supplies you need for these projects I will share the links at the bottom of the post, just click on the images.
Lovecrafts had a free downloadable pattern for this super cute llama.
Two of my favorite Needlepoint patterns came from Country Living, this flower-covered barn and some ripe red strawberries.
The basic needlepoint stitches can be found HERE
Iron on transfer paper makes it really easy to put your downloaded pattern onto paper and then just iron it onto your fabric.
I made this cute bicycle free printable for you to use too. Although I haven’t stitched it yet. My bloggy friends get it first! Just transfer to your needlepoint fabric.
DMC embroidery floss colors for the bicycle pattern-
727 Topaz-VY LT
822 Beige Grey-LT
3766 Peacock Blue-LT
Do you needlepoint ( cross stitch), Embroider, crochet or knit? Are you doing any while you are sheltering in place?
I hope you will enjoy using the free needlepoint patterns. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Always remember “We’re in it Together”
You can still add your blog posts to the TFT blog hop HERE until midnight Saturday night. xo
