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.

Please sign up to receive email updates of my blog posts and be the first to hear about future freebies, new listings in my shop, and more crafty goodness. Also, feel free to contact me regarding custom patterns – I would love to hear from you!

Thanks so much, and happy stitching!

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.

It’s a Swedish Thing

Love the thick satin embroidery over the dark red cloth.

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.

TGIF!

Hope you enjoy this one-of-a-kind pattern. It is based on a photo of rich pink and peach roses. This tapestry would go beautifully in a country or shabby chic style home.
