Free cross stitch pattern of an abstract dragon

I have designed and stitched an abstract dragon. I love the bright different colours! I finished stitching it on Christmas day and as it was Christmas, I wanted to give something back to the stitching community, so I have the pattern in my website free for all to enjoy.

 The dragon is stitched on 16 count aida, I like 16 count, it makes stitches more dense but of course, it will look great on whatever fabric you have available. You do not have to use my colours, any leftover threads would be great.

It is slightly large, it took me a couple of weeks to finish it.
Size: 25 x 31 cm (9.8 x 12 inches) if stitched on 14 count aida
Colours used: 11
No need to add beads,  if  you don't have any. I just used some as they come out nice in photos!

I just wanted to say to all my customers, thank you so much for the support all these years, you are keeping us in business! The abstract dragon is a gift to everyone!

Enjoy and happy stitching.

Abstract horse in cross stitch

New design! An abstract horse which is available in cross stitch kit, pattern or chart alone. Very easy to stitch with full / whole stitches only.

It took me around a week to finish it and I chose to use 16 count aida. I like stitching on 16 count aida as the stitches are more dense and finished project looks great.

Hope everyone likes it.

Heart cross stitch




I have finished stitching a lovely swirly heart. A few tiny mistakes here and there but one can't tell as the design is supposed to be modern/abstract/swirly :-)

I have used 16 count aida, it is all whole/full stitches and there is only one colour, red. I have enjoyed stitching it.

The design is available for purchase at my shop and you can get the whole kit which includes the chart, fabric of your choice, needle, threads and instructions. Or you can get the pattern by post or email.

Hope you like it.
