Free Stained Glass Window Cross Stitch Pattern

I was browsing around on Craftsy last night, and came across a number of beautiful quilt patterns for sale. There were a few that caught my eye, because of their bright colors mixed with black outlines. So, I just had to make a pattern for you!!

I hope you like it. Its a little different from my usual style, but I like the bold, straight, modern lines paired with the softer, more traditional cross stitch motifs. The vibrant colors contrast nicely with the black edges, and I thought the crisp lines could use some softening, so I added a lacey kind of edging, and some pretty florals, too. You can make this one in any color combination- here are my two favorites: teal (which I can’t get enough of, ever.) and bright pink, which I just love when it’s paired with black.

If you’d like to download the PDF pattern, click on this link. (Both teal and pink color schemes are included)

You can save this one, and any of the other free patterns on my blog by RIGHT clicking, and choose SAVE AS. Then just put the file on your computer somewhere you will remember it 🙂

Thank you and happy stitching!

DIY tutorial: How to block mount a cross stitch

A reader recently asked me how I mounted these modern chair cross stitch pieces. Here’s how to get the same look:

 

Material List:

~ Finished Cross Stitch Designs (purchase the 4 modern chairs here)

~ 6″ x 6″ Pre-made artist canvases (x 4)

~ Staple Gun

 

BEFORE YOU STITCH:

Make sure to cut your aida cloth at least 3-4″ larger than the design on each side (cut a piece about 10″ x 10″ for each chair).

 

AFTER YOU STITCH:

Centre the design on the front of the canvas, turn everything over to the wrong side, and use a staple gun to attach all the sides of the aida cloth to the wooden stretchers, as you would stretch a canvas:

 

1. Put one staple in the middle of the top side, then another on the bottom side, pulling a little to make sure the cloth is tight, but not pulling your design out of shape.

2. Put another staple in the middle of the left side, then the right side, again making sure the cloth is snug but not pulling.

2. Then put staples on each side of the first staples, working towards the corners, tugging slightly as you go to make sure fabric stays nice and snug.

3. Lastly, fold the aida cloth corners so they lie flat, and put a few staples in to hold them.

4. You’re done! Just use a nail to hang them on the wall.
