I know it’s Sunday, but I was up at 5am yesterday, and as much as I wanted to get this post finished, my brain wasn’t working! So yes a day late….
Today continues a new feature and brings us close to the end of my Summer Saturday Top 10‘s!
Every Saturday for the past Month, today (instead of yesterday) , and next week (for now) I will share a Top 10 list of creative things from around the net!
This week is “Top Ten Free Cross-Stitch chart sites”… Many of these you may know, though I often get asked what sites I use. I do use google a lot, an image search can prove quite fruitful, though when stitching for specific people I have quite a few sites bookmarked on my computer. Here are a few I had already and I have also been looking around for some great freebie sites! Because we all like free things!
So without further ado and in no particular order, here are my Top Ten:
1: https://www.dovestitch.com/free-cross-stitch-charts-c-105.html A nice variety here from Dovestitch.
2: Loads of free downloadables all sorted by theme from Gvello Stitch http://www.gvellostitch.com/catalog/free_patterns/flowers.html This link is to their floral selection, but you will also find great kids patterns and alphabets to name some others, well worth checking out.
3: Free pretty floral patterns http://www.cross-stitch-pattern.net/Free-Flowers-Charts.aspx
4: http://www.kreinik.com/kshop/home.php?cat=158 Kreinik also has loads of other crafty freebies including papercrafts, which is great for any all rounders, too.
5: http://www.dmccreative.co.uk/DMC-Club/Home/Free-Projects.aspx DMC has a freebie section on their website too!
6: Coats Crafts have a lot of crafty freebies on their site too – http://www.coatscrafts.co.uk/Free+Projects.htm
7: Perhaps a slightly obvious one if you’re a googler, though I do go here quite often http://www.crosstitch.com/ they have over 2000 free patterns in their gallery.
8: Scented Nectar is a recent find, with over 1700 free patterns it’s worth checking out: http://www.scentednectar.com/needlepoint/index.htm
9: http://www.freepatterns.com/list.html?cat_id=343 is kind of what it says on the tin really!
10: http://www.craftdesigns4you.com/free.htm has some great freebies and even more links too!
Please look on the individual sites and patterns for the copyright terms, it is your own responsibility!
I hope you’ve enjoyed todays post. Next week in the final Summer Saturday Top Ten I will be looking at my Top Ten Free Crafty Blogs… All new ones, so sorry to those of you who follow me, that I also follow, this is to find something new!
