Folk roses cross stitch pattern (after William Morris)

The name says it all: here is a new freebie, and it is heavily inspired by beautiful work of William Morris. I have seen some of his amazing gobelins when a large Pre-Rafaelite collection was exhibited in Pushkin art museum in Moscow. The whole exhibition was an overwhelming experience!

Hibiscus flowers cross stitch pattern

Usually I post cross stitch freebies on Tuesdays, but yesterday was somewhat intense – and because of that I made a freebie today (and that is so not OCD, I’m really impressed by myself). Anyway, today I turned into a pattern this public domain image (sending my regards to the unknown author!) with beautiful Hibiscus flowers. It came out very light and easy, with less than ten colors of floss used.

Folk art flower cross stitch bookmark pattern

A couple of weeks ago I posted a poll, asking all my readers about their favourite themes for cross stitching. Now I know that you like to cross stitch flowers :), therefore today’s freebie is flower. (And yes, I love flowers too!) It is a pattern that can be used for a bookmark or as a motif.

The flower is adapted from one of the 19th century folk artworks of John van Minian.
