Sketchy Blooms Cross Stitch Pattern Set
The Sketchy Blooms cross stitch pattern set includes the False Dandelion, Mock Orange, Peonies, and Springbank Clover patterns. These beautiful cross stitch patterns are derived from original gouache and dip ink pen paintings done during a 100 Day Project about Saanich plants and their indigineous use (Victoria, BC). The flowy watercolour-style wash behind the flowers allows the delicate linework of these cross stitch pattern to highlight the beauty of these blooms.
As a bonus, these patterns also come with a 20% discount code for any of the alphabet patterns on the site, in case you wanted to add your own quotes or text to the designs.
Imagine Cross Stitch Pattern
The ethereal Imagine cross stitch pattern brings to life the mysterious nature of this gorgeous Luna moth. The Luna moth is so-named because of the crescent moon shapes on its wings, and it symbolizes new beginnings, and delving into the mysterious to bring knowledge and truth to light. Featuring beautiful soft greens, purples, and corals, the delicate nature of this cross stitch pattern is enhanced by backstitch and some French knots for texture. For a more moody vibe, this pattern can be stitched on a darker fabric, as shown in the photo gallery. Based on an original illustration by Dana Batho, and as seen in Issue 20 (Mystery) of XStitch Magazine.
Shine On Cross Stitch Pattern
The Shine On cross stitch pattern started as a pretty illustration, and within a few months was featured in Issue 19 of XStitch Magazine (the Yay issue) as a cross stitch pattern. Ladybugs are a symbol of good luck and prosperity, and are so pretty to look at in a garden of beautiful flowers. Featuring vibrant tones of orange, pink, and purple, hopefully these energizing happy colours uplift you and make your day a little better.

This pattern features luscious Jacobean-era inspired flowers and pomegranates, as well as stunning Japan Threads and gold beading. The text, “Awa an raffle yersel”, is a Scottish insult translating to a milder form of “piss off”… 😂 Of course, you’re free to come up with your own translation for those who may be “sensitive” to the real meaning, such as “Entertain yourself.” If the text isn’t to your taste for the pattern, you could add in your own text with any of the cross stitch alphabet charts, or you could stitch the pattern without the text, there’s an example photograph showing what it looks like without text. And if you’re not sure what Japan Threads are, you can check out this free video tutorial. 😊

Be the Villain Cross Stitch Pattern
Feel like getting a little stabby? Maybe the “Be The Villain” cross stitch pattern can help you out… 😂 When people ask me what I do, I often say, “I help people relax by stabbing something 20,000 times.” This dark humour reminded me of many villains, and I was inspired by the cool elegance of Bond villains in particular. Featured in Issue 5 of XStitch Magazine, “Be the Villain” represents how our outer well-groomed appearance can mask our darker side.
