So, a few days ago I posted a Halloween cross stitch pattern and I apologized about 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 a 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!
