Surprise Freebie: Secret Santa Christmas Star

It's not Friday and this isn't a Friday freebie! It's the pattern I used to make the Secret Santa for the yearly Stitching Pirates group over on deviant art and the recipient has said it's ok for me to share it!
I stitched mine on 12ct Aida as that's what I had to hand, though I wanted to use 14ct Aida.

For some reason it shows as rectangular even though it's a perfectly square pattern - it's the risk of Aida of an unknown brand. As mine is so big and I used 3 strands of the DMC for cross stitch and 2 strands of DMC for the backstitch I used a lot more thread than the pattern says.

The pattern has 2 pages and 2 pages of written instructions - one is the pattern itself in the correct colours and the second pattern page is the pattern showing all the misc. stitching lines - all colour coded! The written instructions tell you the stitching order. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask - If you can't express yourself in English then use your own language, Google translate and I are friends hehe.

You can find the pattern here

I'll see you tomorrow for your regularly scheduled Friday freebie!


  1. Amazing work, never seen anything like it.
