Free Babushka cross stitch pattern

As I am busy stitching away on my new Babushka sampler pattern (full update tomorrow)....
I thought it was time for a bit of a freebie.....

So I have chosen one of the 'girls' for you to stitch....


Excuse the bad photo - I am stitching on waste canvas hence the blue lines and have just taken it out of the hoop!
Click here to get the free pdf pattern. It outlines all you need to get started - fabric, threads and cross stitch instructions for 14 count aida. Perfect for beginners.

This pattern is free for you to use on your own projects and you can even sell the stitched design if you fancy - but it would be great if you could include a link to my blog!

I know you wouldn't but I have to say it...please don't on sell the pattern. Freebies are so nice it would be a shame to abuse the privilege. Thank you!

Happy stitching!

  2. It's a really lovely pattern and would be perfect for my little girls room. I would love to try it using waste canvas but I had a bit of a disaster with it before Christmas. I spent ages stitching a lovely pattern using red thread on white canvas and when I was removing the thread it ran. So disappointing.
    Do you have a any tips to avoid this?
    I love your felt babushka dolls too!

    1. Oh no how awful! I often remove the waste canvas without wetting it. If you start carefully from one side only and very patiently (!) remove the canvas strand by strand pulling them downwards.Then you can start removing strands from across the top or bottom. As long as you pull them in single strands you won't get in a tangle. Hope this helps!

    2. A late reply for people who will need it. If you're worried about your thread running, you can soak it in water and then dry it before you use it. Just pat it down with a towel and then let it air dry after that.

  4. I love this pattern but I am having trouble downloading it from Scribd without a paid account. Is there any way around that or do you have to be member?

    1. Hi Kate.
      Scribd was free when I listed this pattern, I am really annoyed it now costs. I am going to find another place to host my freebies.
      Anyway just let me know your email address and I will be happy to email the pattern to you.
      Thanks!

  6. The download option is no longer active. I tried everything I knew and I couldn't get it to download. Do you have it on another site by any chance? This is adorable!
