Happy Friday! Every week I post a free pattern download. They’re available for 24 hours. After that, you can find them in my Etsy or eBay shop.
What better way to say Be Mine than with this classic, tattoo-inspired pattern?
The fun thing about this pattern is that it only uses 4 colors, so you can customize your project and change it up if you like! Create a one-of-a-kind work of art for any room in your house!
Below are a few color options to give you some ideas. Finished piece will be about 14×11 inches, based on a standard, 14 count fabric.
Happy bidding, and thanks so much for supporting handmade!
P.S. Love this pin-up, but want to make something of your own? I also have this fabulous retro illustration available as a fabric block! Perfect for embroidery hoops, altered art embroidery, pillows and more!
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?

Wake me up before you go-go, I don’t wanna miss it when you hit that high. Wake me up before you go-go, ‘Cause I’m not planning on goin’ solo. Wake me up before you go-go, Take me dancing tonight… I wanna hit that high… Yeah, yeah.
Wham! Timeless elegance and lyrical poetry. I just finished this one-of-a-kind cross-stitch pattern last night and I am so excited to share it with you!
Bella Stitchery is the ONLY place to find this gem – guaranteed!
The finished piece will be about 15×16 inches, based on a 14 ct. Aida cloth (size will vary slightly, depending on the size canvas you select).
With purchase, you will receive an email PDF file with the complete pattern with DMC floss code.
**ALL MY PATTERNS USE ONLY BASIC X STITCHES, SO THEY ARE GREAT FOR ANY LEVEL OF CROSS-STITCHER! NO BACK STITCHES, 1/2 STITCHES, KNOTS OR BEADING!!**
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, caffeine. It’s how I start (and continue to live) my day. Coffee, Diet Coke, chocolate – anything will do in a pinch.
My love for that sweet magic is what inspired me to embroider this little puppy. It’s a hand-stitched caffeine molecule. The hoop is about 5.5 inches and it’s stitched with eye-catching yellow on a bright teal fabric – sure to wake you up, just like your morning cup of Joe.
Stop by my Etsy shop for more listing details. It’s perfect for home or office and is a great gift idea, too!
Thanks so much for stopping by and supporting handmade!
As an avid crafter, I have no shortage of craft ideas in my hopper to try next (hard to imagine life before Pinterest).
I have come to the realization that just because I treasure handmade, it doesn’t mean I have to make everything. My craft room is only so big!
I’m suggesting that, rather than DIY, let’s promote BIY(buy-it-yourself) once in awhile. Save yourself the time and shopping cart full of materials for one single project that – let’s be honest – may or may not ever get made, and support other crafters. It’s a win-win!
Today’s item is the pillow cover. Pillows are a great way to dress up a couch, chair, or bed. They’re also lots of fun to incorporate into holiday decorating!
Here are some amazing crafters that would love to share their handiwork with you:
Antlers are all the rage right now (love ’em!) and this deer pillow cover is a steal at under seventeen bucks over at ColorArtDecor!
Velvet is the order of the day with this rich peacock pillow cover at WhooplaArt. It’s sure to be the envy of all your guests!
Now, here’s a pillow that’s just my type! Check out the pillow covers at CarolinaMint. With over 300 covers to choose from, you’re sure to find something you love.
This would be the perfect addition to your favorite reading chair! Pick up this sassy cuddly square cover at VintageAffairStudio.
Up, up, and away! These pillow covers are flying off the shelf at Andrekart. I love the unique photography incorporated in each design.
It’s superheroes to the rescue with these amazing pillow covers from QingsShop
