Friends–I have more cross stitch saint patterns to share with you today–33 of them to be exact. Once again, I had a blast putting these patterns together, and I wish I could have made more. Over the last 2 weeks I have been taking requests for saints to make in cross stitch from my newsletter subscribers and Facebook followers. And, I was flooded with requests! Over 100 people emailed me. Lots of people wanted the same saints, but there were a few requests I just couldn’t get to. I’m so sorry! I wanted to make them all, but life, baby, family just wouldn’t allow it.
So, in the end I have 33–and I will be offering the entire bundle for just $3 through the end of the week. Next week the price will double.
Included in this set are the following saints:
- St. Ann and Joachim
- St. Benedict
- St. Blaise
- St. Chirstopher

- St. Emma
- St. Francis Xaiver
- St. Francis de Sales
- St. Hubert
- St. Isidore
- St. Jane Frances
- St. John Bosco
- St. John the Baptist
- St. Jude
- St. Killian
- St. Lawerence
- St. Leo the Great
- St. Luke
- St. Margaret Mary Aloque
- Mary Magdelene
- St. Perpetua and St. Felicity
- St. Peter

- St. William
- St. Zita
As usual, each saint in depicted on a separate page on an easy to read grid and color chart.
This set might have been my favorite to make since there were several new saints to me. I did a lot of research and really strove to depict these saints in meaningful ways. Because that is one of my favorite things about our faith. Historically the Catholic church has used art and images to teach the faith–and I hope that as you or your children stitch up these saints you are really EDUCATED about these wonderful saints.
For example, here is St. Thomas Aquinas.
St. Thomas Aquinas is holding a small church because he is a “Father of the Church” He is also standing in front of an angel because he wrote extensively on angels. It is my hope that as the saint is stitched you can think about and dig into what it means to be a church father and we we believe to be true about angels.
Here is another example, St. Hubert.
I knew nothing about St. Hubert before this project, except that he was the patron saint of hunters and mathematicians. There is a super cool story that goes with St. Hubert, though, one that took place while he was hunting and led to his deep and total conversion. It is definitely worth a read!
And finally, St. Felicity and St. Perpetua.
I knew that these two ladies were early Christian martyrs, but that was it. After some research I learned that they were both mothers–Perpetua the mother of an infant that was still nursing and Felicity was pregnant at the time of her martyrdom. What great ladies to ask for intercession while going through those things, right ladies? Also, Perpetua was a noble woman Felicity was a slave. Who knew?
There are several other saints in this bundle and I wish I could talk you through the creation of each, but alas, the baby is due to wake up any moment.
Once again, you can get THE WHOLE BUNDLE FOR $3 THIS WEEK.
Thank you for your support, now and in the past!
