Free Cross Stitch Patterns

In 1998 I started a website to give away free cross stitch patterns that I created. I am definitely not an artist, and these charts are pretty simple. But I had fun creating them, and maybe you can find something you can use. Hey, you can’t beat free, right? Due to marriage, having kids, and starting two businesses, I haven’t had much time lately to add new charts. But the old ones will always be here, and you are welcome to download anything you like. Share them with your friends, even sell the items that you make with them. But please, do not sell my charts themselves, say that you designed them, or add the charts to your own website/blog. Just link to instead.

Happy Stitching!

  1. Its not my first time to pay a quick visit this website, i am visiting this site dailly and take pleasant data from here daily.

  2. I am looking for this pattern is it available some where?

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

  3. Would you be able to tell me some of the color names? I bought this cross stitch kit at a garage sale several years ago and am finally ready to take on the challenge. However, it is missing several skeins (which I figured-thinking I could easily replace them) but the paper is a little worn, over some of the colors names/numbers! Could you please tell me the name of the third and fourth color (I think the fourth one is Mango?) along with the numbers for them and just the numbers for the 5th color: Lt. Orange, the 8th: Terra Cotta, and the 10th: Cream please? I have exhausted my research trying to buy Dimensions skeins and now am trying to find alternatives through DMC or Anchor, but need the original numbers for that to work….

  4. I like the helpful information you provide in your articles.I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here regularly.I’m quite sure I’ll learn many new stuff right here!Good luck for the next!

  5. I have lost my instructions for Spirit of the Cougar cross stitch, do you know how to get it so I can finish? Appreciate the help, thanks.

    • If it is the same one I stitched, there is no pattern, the lines are printed on the fabric and you just stitch over them. I do have the instructions still, but I can’t post them because of copyright issues. But the purple french knots are done in 4 strands. The blue french knots are done in 6 strands. The french knot in the very center is done in 4 strands of white. The green circle surrounding it is done in 2 strands of backstitch. The blue circle surrounding that is done in 2 strands with stem stitch. The backstitch of the outer leaves (for the white, yellow, and green) is done in 6 strands. The innermost yellow of the same area is done in couching stitch with 3 strands. The blue area on the outside that has the french knots, is done in couching stitch with 6 strands. The white part inside of that is also done with couching stitch, 6 strands. The purple lines that connect those french knots is done in straight stitch with 4 strands. The orange part of the middle rounded leaves is done in 3 strands with backstitch. The pink, orange, yellow, and white veins inside those leaves is done in straight stitch with 2 strands. The purple innermost teardrop shapes are done in backstitch with 3 strands. The pink web part around that is also done in 3 strands of backstitch. Hope this helps! Or, if you want you can do what I did and just follow the photo to stitch each section however you want. Some of the stitches were not to my liking and some of the floss thicknesses seemed off to me. The great thing about this kit is that you can just stitch on top of the lines on the fabric and not have to worry about following their instructions exactly.
