The Signature Collection of cross stitch patterns features a range of floral, art, and seasonal patterns that Peacock & Fig has become known for. These patterns are all 4″ x 4″ in size or bigger (as stitched on 14 count fabric). They are all designed using full stitches (no fractionals), and only some have backstitch. These patterns have limited colour palettes to make stitching easier and more enjoyable. The number of colours range from 7 to 33 for these patterns, so even beginners can start on any of these patterns with confidence!
These patterns are a collection of designs that were featured in magazines or designed for specialty events.
Adventure for Introverts Cross Stitch Pattern
Just in case the past 18 months have been a bit **too** adventurous for your taste, the Adventure for Introverts cross stitch pattern lets you never forget that as a crafter you’ve been preparing for this mission your whole life — having to entertain yourself at home and not go outside… Now go forth and teach the world your ways, oh wise one… 😂 As seen in Issue 17 (“Adventure”) of XStitch Magazine, and Issue 55 of Uppercase Magazine.
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.
Don’t Call Me Cute Cross Stitch Pattern
If you’re feeling feisty, the “Don’t Call Me Cute” cross stitch pattern might be right up your alley. With vibrant purples, corals, and mint and a fun circular design, it’s a great way to make a statement about how fierce you are. Tell those in your life to up their game when they “compliment” you, you are so much more than just how you look. And, “cute” is way overrated anyway — you are also a badass, let the world know it. ❤️

Face That Cares Cross Stitch Pattern
Have you ever been asked an incredibly stupid question, or just keep getting pestered and pestered and pestered and you cannot bring yourself to muster any cares anymore? In case these scenarios are ringing a bell, the Face That Cares cross stitch pattern is a perfect “reminder” to anyone in your home about your general attitude when they come to you with their trivial woes, or it’s an “ideal” gift to say you care … 😂 The Face That Cares design was inspired by the designer’s childhood in a beautiful 70-acre orchard in British Columbia’s Okanagan region, with this idyllic setting punctured by her father’s constant cheeky retort to her and her brother, “Does this look like a face that cares?!?” Fun fact, he STILL says this to family and friends… 😂 This cross stitch pattern was featured in Issue 12 (Noir) of XStitch Magazine.
Feel the Groove Cross Stitch Pattern
Get down and get funky with this disco-inspired pattern! Feel the Groove is just bursting with colour and energy, and has a touch of nostalgia for that old-school vibe. This cross stitch pattern uses only full cross stitch (no backstitch). This fun pattern was featured in the “Beats” issue of XStitch Magazine. Let your hair down and bring out your inner dance goddess with the Feel the Groove pattern.
Flowers of Love Cross Stitch Pattern
This gorgeous simple cross stitch pattern makes a lovely graphic statement, and can be stitched in a myriad of colours. It’s also a great project for using variegated floss.

Get Bent Cross Stitch Pattern
Now that people are starting to return to their offices or are oh-so-over endless Zoom calls, now might be a great time to jazz up your workstation so you can tell your coworkers exactly where they need to go with their “great” idea… 😂 Based on an original watercolour painting, the Get Bent cross stitch pattern is the perfect mix of sweet and sassy. As seen in Issue 18 of XStitch Magazine.
Happy Holidays, Deer Cross Stitch Pattern
Inspired by folk art and rustic farmhouse colours, the Happy Holidays, Deer cross stitch pattern is perfect if you want to have one piece of Christmas decor that won’t make your grandmother facepalm. Because nothing says the holidays like a wild animal festooned with ornaments … 😂
As seen in Issue 14 of XStitch Magazine. Please note the magazine stitched model is using 2mm gold bugle beads in lieu of the French knots in the pattern.
Heart Grows Fonder Cross Stitch Pattern
Did the cheeky phrase in the Heart Grows Fonder cross stitch pattern just make you do a double take? Good, because that’s intentional… 😂 This design is a play on the phrase, “Distance makes the heart grow fonder,” because let’s be honest, that just makes you cranky and sad. Although it isn’t everything, nobody’s gonna be mad to have more fortune in their life. This colourful cross stitch pattern was featured in Issue 13 (“Fortune”) of XStitch Magazine.
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.
Lick My Frosting Cross Stitch Pattern
The sassy Lick My Frosting cupcake cross stitch pattern will certainly make a statement in your decor… 😂 This fun pattern was featured in Issue 8 of XStitch Magazine (the Munchies issue). Cupcakes are a little bundle of exquisite happiness in a mouthful. The great thing is they’re portable and socially acceptable, so you can have them in your office, in front of friends, in a public park…. all without raising an eyebrow like you may with other more “sensual” pursuits that bring you the same spark of joy… 😉
Live Free Cross Stitch Pattern
We all have days where we want to escape from the noise and stress of the world, and mermaids are often seen as a symbol of grace and untamed freedom. Featured in Issue 6 of XStitch Magazine, the Live Free mermaid cross stitch pattern is a reminder to take a deep breath and let the stillness of the ocean depths inspire some peace in your day.
Memories of Japan Cross Stitch Pattern
The Memories of Japan cross stitch pattern was featured in Issue 9 (Orient) of XStitch Magazine, and is based on the designer’s own experiences living in Japan for four years. It’s a country of deep traditions in culture and crafts, and amazing places like Miyajima with its famous torii (gate) and crazy monkeys. It’s a country of juxtapositions, from beautiful sights like the incredible cherry blossoms to the cacophany of a Japanese city street at night. Japan is a fascinating country of beauty, colours, and traditions, and a small taste of this is reflected in the Memories of Japan cross stitch pattern.
Namaste Cross Stitch Pattern
We’re all taught to be so polite and not express our true feelings, but some days you really just need to be left alone. On days like that, let the peaceful-looking Namaste cross stitch pattern do the talking for you… 😉 This pattern was featured in Issue 11 (Namaste) of XStitch Magazine.
No Words Needed Cross Stitch Pattern
Some days you have to try so hard to not say what you really want to say, but at least you can let your face do the talking with the No Words Needed cross stitch pattern… 😂 A pretty floral and botanical wreath surrounds a sassy quote, making it a perfect addition to your home or office. And if you’re stuck working from home doing Zoom call after Zoom call, just make sure this is strategically placed in the background, all your coworkers will be *super* impressed… 😂 This cheeky pattern was featured in Issue 10 (“Mixtape Vol 2”) of XStitch Magazine.
Paths to Love Blackwork Pattern
The Paths to Love blackwork pattern was featured in Issue 7 (the Love issue) of XStitch Magazine, and is inspired by the many paths we have to find and nurture love every day. Many people assume “romantic” when you say love, but it’s so much more. Whether it’s your friends, your family, your co-workers, your community as a whole, your pets, your career, or your hobbies, our lives are filled with opportunities to find love. This blackwork pattern is designed to inspire you to think of all the avenues to love in your life that have been neglected, or need to be re-explored. And if you’ve never done blackwork before, have no fear — it’s just full cross stitches and backstitch. 🙂
Peacock Feather Cross Stitch Pattern
The beautiful Peacock Feather cross stitch pattern was inspired by a vintage illustration, and was created to celebrate the opening of the Peacock & Fig shop. A customer favourite, this pattern is great for beginner stitchers that are wanting to tackle their first multi-colour project as there are limited colours and the finished size is only 5″ wide by 6″ high (if stitched on 14 count fabric). Add a touch of elegance and vintage whimsy to your decor with the Peacock Feather pattern.
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.
Thank You Cross Stitch Pattern
Tell those in your life that they matter, that you see them, that you thank them. Whether it’s your child’s teacher, your local shop owner who goes above and beyond, first responders who keep you safe, or the healthcare workers that keep you and your family healthy, they all appreciate a sincere thank you so deeply. This pattern can be adjusted to allow space to add in a name as shown in the images. An alphabet is not included in this pattern, but there are several alphabet charts available to purchase (the Backstitch Alphabets chart in particular would be great for this pattern, as the pattern itself is quite small at 4″ high by 6″ wide on 14 count). This pattern is also perfect for using up bits of leftover floss, as it’s only two sets of colours (a lighter and a darker of each) which can be easily changed to your taste. And because this pattern is smaller, it’s easy to stitch up multiple times, to say thank you to all those in your life who you appreciate so much.
Thrills and Spills Cross Stitch Pattern
Nothing says “retro cross stitch” like a little blast from Scandinavian design past… Remember in the 70’s when printed paper towels were THE height in luxury? No?! Well in case you missed out on this gem of home decor extravaganza, you can stitch up your own luxe paper towel with the Thrills and Spills cross stitch pattern as a little “reminder” to your family that you’re not their maid. Fingers crossed they catch the “subtle” hint…
