Hello friends, well… because of the pandemic we all have time on your hands. Your to-do list may not include making something cute, but it should. I enjoy embroidery and simple cross stitch making. Have you ever made hoop art? The hoop is your frame, and it’s one of my favorite methods. Today I am sharing Free Printable Cross Stitch Patterns ( I think you can also use them for embroidery) When my mother taught me how to cross stitch and embroider 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. ( it’ll take you to my affiilate and some great values)
Lovecrafts has a free downloadable pattern for this super cute llama.
Two of my favorite cross stitch patterns came from Country Living, this flower-covered barn ( or home sweet home) and ripe red strawberries.
The basics of counted cross stitch can be found HERE
Iron on transfer paper makes it easy to put your downloaded pattern onto paper and then just iron it onto your fabric. This method is probably best for my simple bicycle image. I don’t have any special cross stitch software, so I hope you can make this pattern using the transfer method.You can leave off the wording if you prefer.
Although I haven’t stitched it yet. My bloggy friends get it first! Just download to get started.
DMC embroidery floss colors for the bicycle pattern-

Do you enjoy cross stitch, embroidery, crochet or knitting? Are you doing any while you are sheltering in place?
I hope you will enjoy using the free patterns. Wishing you a lovely weekend.
