The Solarize Dahlia counted cross stitch pattern set will bring a touch of modern vibrance into any decor with their vivid cool tones. This set consists of four patterns, which can be stitched individually or on one larger piece of fabric to create one image. This pattern is full stitches only, with no back stitch. These counted cross stitch patterns are great for beginners as they are small, but also are a fun stitching project for more experienced stitchers. The set is a PDF download, so you can get started on your newest project straight away!
This set includes a full DMC colour key, colour preview and thread sorter. It also includes black and white and colour versions of each panel, all of which are one-page patterns to enable them to be easily used on digital devices. A layout chart for all four panels is also included.
Models stitched on 14 count white Aida with DMC embroidery floss.
Please note: This is a digital PDF pattern only, not a printed pattern that will be shipped in the mail. It is not a kit or a finished product. You will be sent a download link when your payment has been processed. Any up-to-date PDF reader (for example Preview on a Mac, GoodReader on iOS, or Adobe Reader on a Mac or PC) will be able to read the patterns, or they can be printed for ease of use.
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.
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.
The Mother Matriarch cross stitch pattern proclaims to the world how fiercely strong you are, and how you are the anchor of your family around whom everyone else pivots. Are you a completely amazing woman who has surprised yourself with how much you’ve gone through and survived (particularly in the last year)? Or is your mother someone who has held the entire family and her world together with her strength and tenacity? In the past year we’ve had, every day should be Mother’s Day, so celebrate how awesome you are. This badass cross stitch pattern features bling such as beading and metallics to really emphasize how glorious you are, and how your shine lights up your world. If this pattern seems familiar, it’s an adaptation combining the Queen cross stitch pattern and the Queen Bee cross stitch pattern (appropriately enough), with added calligraphic text to proclaim how fierce you are. Never worked with beading or Kreinik metallics? Have no fear, there are beading tutorials and tips for using Kreinik so you have nothing to worry about. You are the Mother Matriarch, you can conquer any challenge that comes your way, and you’ve already proven that. ❤️

Just finished the first 1/4 square. This was my second ever cross stitch project so I’d say this is probably a fairly easy to follow pattern. I enjoyed it a lot and will enjoy it even more now that it’s done!

Very detailed, yet easy to follow pattern.
