So, a few days ago I posted a Halloween cross stitch pattern and I apologized for jumping ahead to that holiday.
Well, today I’m jumping even further ahead–to Christmas with this Nativity Character Counted Cross Stitch Pattern.
And, to be blunt, I am in love with this little project.
As my husband can attest I have a thing for nativity sets.
In fact, he travels a lot internationally. And the thing he always brings me back is a nativity set, no matter the season.
I just love nativity scenes in every shape and fashion, and I love this little cross-stitch addition to my collection.
Although I haven’t done it yet, I plan on completing this project by sewing this Nativity Character Counted Cross Stitch project onto a pillow.
Still thinking about how I want to do that…
As you can see there are 10 characters in this pattern–2 angels, 2 shepherds, 3 Kings, Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus (hopefully you can tell who is who without my help).
I tried to add a lot of color to the project and spent a lot of time both designing it and stitching it up myself.
In fact, that is why I decided to share it with you now in September–like all embroidery projects this one does take a little time.
So here it is, with plenty of time to complete it before Christmas!
However, as I mentioned when I shared the Halloween Character pattern, I’m not offering this pattern for free here (sorry!).
Because it took me so long to create. And because I had to invest in some software I’ve decided to open an Etsy shop and offer it there for $5.
Only $5, right?
And this way I can keep creating these little patterns. Which I intend to do, and continue to offer them to any stitcher out there for really cheap.
I hope you consider supporting me!
Here is another look at The Nativity Characters Cross Stitch Pattern:
Like all of my patterns, this is available as an instant download.
It will come with a thread guide, instructions, and a large, clear PDF of the pattern.
Thanks, as always, for being here–and I hope you enjoy this pattern!
