Friday Freebie – Vintage Pumpkin Patch Cross-Stitch Pattern Download

FREE Vintage Pumpkin Patch Pattern

Welcome to my Bella Stitchery blog, and I am so happy to give you today’s freebie pattern!

I made it just last night with the help of a Vintage Thanksgiving illustration, Photoshop, my cross-stitch software, and some late-night coffee (love the Caramel Brulée Latte from Starbucks).

Simply click here to download the pattern, complete with DMC floss requirements. All the stitches are full X stitches, so it’s great for any level of cross-stitcher. This piece will be approximately 20×12.25 inches, based on a 14 count fabric (you can use any size you like, however) and the stitch count is 280×173.

The holidays are here once again, and it’s a great time to cozy in with the family, enjoy a little time off of school and work, and get busy cross-stitchin’! With all the classic holiday movies about to start up on television, what better way to relive those old favorites than with a Thanksgiving themed cross-stitch pattern?

Here are some that I have made. They can all be found under the holiday section of my Bella Stitchery Design shop on Etsy.

My new obsession – Swedish embroidery.

Love the color. Love the flowers. Love the style.

What is it? It’s rich – full of life and character. It’s a feeling.

Spoooooktacular Cross-Stitch

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door—
“‘Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
               Only this and nothing more.”

The Raven

Edgar Allan Poe

Fall is a great time of year to decorate, and Halloween is filled with lots of spooooky, creepy options. Some of my favorite cross-stitch patterns are of Halloween. It can be anything from gothic, Vintage and retro to modern and colorful.

The pattern above is my newest creation, lovingly called Halloween Library, and it can be downloaded here.
