A free pattern featuring baubles hanging from the words “Merry Christmas” has been added to the PinBroidery collection.
The pattern size is 152 mm x 104 mm (6 x 4½ inches).
An eye-catching curve stitching design that creates a heart within a circle has been added here. The illustration shows the design stitched in confetti pink thread. The pattern size is 120 mm x 120 mm (4¾ x 4¾ inches).
Please note that this is a challenging pattern designed for advanced stitchers.
If you would like to try the pattern you can download it from the link below:
The pattern is in a PDF file and you will need Adobe Reader to view and print it. Adobe Reader software can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website.
The design is a scaled down version of a mathematical pattern that I created for my String Art Fun website. If you are interested in creating pictures with nails and string you will find several free patterns to try at String Art Fun.
Please let me have your thoughts on this geometric design. Is this the kind of design you are interested in? Would you like to see more? Let us know in a comment to this blog.
I have been conducting a pattern size survey on my Prick and Stitch is my Craft blog. This has produced a good response with about half of those voting saying they would like the PinBroidery square patterns to be smaller than 144 x 144 mm (5¾ x 5¾ inches). To take the survey to the next stage I have produced a reduced size version of the flower corners pattern available free from this web site. You can download the smaller pricking pattern from the link below.
I have reduced the pattern to 120 x 120 mm (4¾ x 4¾ inches). There are a number of manufacturers who produce single fold greetings card blanks that a stitched panel of this size could be mounted on.
You will have to download the original full size flower corners pattern to get the stitching instructions.
I do like the larger size as it gives me more scope to develop the pattern. What I have in mind for future PinBroidery patterns is that I could supply the pricking pattern in two sizes: 144 mm square and a reduced size to be decided. Your feedback will help me come to a decision on this.
Please let me have your feedback on the smaller pattern as a comment to this article or on the Prick and Stitch is my Craft blog.
In my previous post I offered a French version of my free PinBroidery flower corners pattern with the words “Heureux Anniversaire” (Happy Birthday). This was produced at the request of Jackie, an English lady living in France.
Jackie has now sent me a picture of a finished card so I thought I would share it with you.
Jackie says: “This is stitched in Sulky holoshimmer gold and fuchsia thread plus an Indian thread for the green leaves”.

We have been asked by Jackie for a version of the PinBroidery flower corners pattern with “Heureux Anniversaire” in the middle. Jackie is an English lady living in France and she tells us that “I want to show some of my French friends how to do this sort of stitching”.
If you would like the French pricking pattern for the flower corners embroidery on paper design you can download it from the link below. It is just the pricking pattern; you will also need the instructions from our free PinBroidery patterns section.
The patterns are delivered by download to your computer in PDF format.
To save the pattern for later, put your mouse pointer over the download link, click the right mouse button and select “Save Target/Link As…” from the menu that appears.
Here are a couple of suggestions on how you can personalise the free PinBroidery prick and stitch flower corners pattern.
The first one has been stitched without the words Happy Birthday. It is mounted on a gold greetings card. Rose clip art has been added to the centre.
