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?

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, there is no shortage of craft ideas in my hopper to try next (hard to imagine life before Pinterest).
I have come to the realization, 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 fabulous, trendy infinity scarf. Here are some amazing crafters that would love to share their handiwork with you:
