(Yet another) Maneki-neko cross stitch chart

Smiling maneki-neko cross stitch chart

Today I made another cross stitch pattern based on my own drawing (the previous being the Turtle Island pattern). It is another chart of Japanese lucky cat maneki-neko, that is said to bring fortune and happiness, as well as a bunch of other good things 🙂 With this pattern I wish luck to all of you, and hope that it will brighten your day! 🙂

Black big-eyed cat silhouette cross stitch pattern

A big-eyed cat on this pattern is an addition to my growing collection of black silhouetted charts. Ah yes, I promise, that I will do something more colorful next time 🙂 But as for today – enjoy this tribute to the past Halloween.

Dragon silhoette cross stitch pattern

Once again a creative idea was given by the Skyrim PC game (someday I will make the dragon logo of this game into a pattern too, I swear!).

An easy tatoo-styled silhouette of a dragon on this chart can be stitched in black on white, or vice versa for more emphasis.

Growling tiger cross stitch chart

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forest of the night
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

William Blake

Oh well, it seems the kitty doesn’t want belly rubs right now 🙂 But he still stays one of my favorite wild animals – so today I made a Growling Tiger pattern out of a photo found somewhere on the Internet. I did my best, but the chart still uses 50 colors, so I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners or for impatient crafters like myself.

Stitch count: 150w x 141h , 50 colors.

Did you know? Contrary to the popular belief, the tiger is the biggest wild cat, even bigger than the lion.

Jazz Cat cross stitch pattern

If there is something that I love more than music or craft, then it is cats without any doubt. The Jazz Cat pattern combined music, cats and crafts together 🙂 This chart of a gray bass playing cat is based on my own original drawing (actually this tom is the first one of the series of musical cats that I wanted to draw).

Stitch count: 94w x 117h Stitches, 9 colors . Ideal for beginners due to limited amount of colors and easy cartoon style.

Turtle Island cross stitch pattern

Today’s pattern is completely original and is based on my own drawing of a turtle with a forest on it’s back.

Style of the forest is inspired by beauty of The Book of Kells animation, and the idea of this picture comes from the cosmological myth of the Great Turtle, that carries the world on it’s back.

The vibrant colors and animation style of this pattern will make it a great decoration for a playroom.

Stitch count: 110w X 135h stitches, 20 colors

Did you know? (I didn’t!) In some Native American tribes the Turtle Island is a name for North American continent.

Like that pattern? Say ‘way to go!’ in comments! 🙂

The guardian cat cross stitch pattern

I saw this funny photo of a cat guarding his territory and instantly converted it into a small pattern. Ah yes, I love cats (as proven by all cat patterns I made 🙂 ) .

I hope you will enjoy this pattern as well. It is small and simple and uses only black and white floss (try using canvas of different color to make it even more interesting). You can also stitch different text on the sign (anything from “I love cats” to “Hello world”), for your convenience I have included in the package a printable pattern with no text.

Stitch count: 73w x 59h, 2 colors
