Free Pattern for a Fall Flower Vase

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Fall is officially here!

To celebrate, I’ve designed and stitched a brand new cross stitch pattern to share with you this week.

Stitch this pretty Fall Flower Vase pattern using six shades of DMC Embroidery Floss on textured CharlesCraft 18-count Fiddler’s Aida in an earthy oatmeal color – perfect for fall stitching projects.

I’ve used autumn colors in this example, but the colors used in the project can be easily adapted to your own favorites.

The design measures approximately 2 x 6 inches when stitched, and can be finished as a pin cushion or ornament, as I’ve done here.

My version is trimmed with twisted cording made using two colors of the same floss that was used for stitching for a custom look.

I’ll show you how to make both single and two-color cording in an upcoming blog, so stay tuned.

Until then, happy stitching!
