Free Pattern – Maleficent

I know it’s been a while since I released a stand alone free pattern. I’ve been so focused on my SALs that I’ve let a lot of partially finished patterns fall to the wayside. So I decided to dust one off and finish it up for you all today!

Maleficent is my favorite Disney villain. I’ve loved her since I first saw Sleeping Beauty when I was younger. I mean, she can turn in to a dragon! How cool is that?

Paw Patrol

Nothing is more fun than having little ones interested in your hobbies and it’s such a great way to spend quality time with them.  

Here’s the first in the series of simple patterns for little ones that can be stitched on either cross stitch fabric or plastic canvas featuring one of my son’s favorite shows: Paw Patrol!

The Rose

In celebration of being close to the end of test stitching the Tale as Old as Time SAL. Here’s a Beauty and the Beast themed pattern for you. 

What’s more iconic than the enchanted rose? 

(You can always stitch this on a light blue fabric to avoid the boatload of blue stiches!)

Special Cupcake

I love snarky sayings that sound like compliments. It’s a Southern (USA) specialty. If you’re traveling in the South and someone says “Well aren’t you just precious” it is not a compliment. Here’s an original design for one of my favorite phrases like that: “You’re one special cupcake.”

Happy stitching everyone!


One of my family’s favorite non-Disney movie is the Minions movie. Well, pretty much any movie with minions in it. I’m pretty sure my son can speak fluent Minionese. 

For your stitching pleasure here’s a pattern of our three favorite minions: Stuart, Kevin, and Bob.

Happy stitching everyone!
