Our Red Rose Cross Stitch Pattern makes an ideal gift for someone you love, whether that’s a relative celebrating a special birthday, or a friend who needs to know you’re thinking about them.
Surprisingly, there are six beautiful colors in this design and the lovely shades of red, green and brown add depth to create a luxurious feel.
We’ve made the Red Rose Cross Stitch Pattern on 16 count white Aida, although we think it would look just as good on a cream background, or even more glamorous on navy blue material. It measures 50 x 80 stitches, so it’s the perfect size to make into a card. Alternatively, you could frame it as we’ve done, in a wooden embroidery hoop.
If you decide to use a wooden hoop just give it a light sanding with a piece of emery paper to make sure there are no rough edges to damage the Aida.
When you order the Red Rose Cross Stitch Pattern from our website, you’ll receive two charts. One is in color and explains which DMC colors we’re using, and the other is a black and white symbol chart, to make the design as easy as possible to stitch. You can then either stitch using the design on your computer screen or you can print out the picture to use at any time.
If you enjoy making the Red Rose Cross Stitch Pattern then do take a look at some of our other designs. We’re adding new ones to our StitchMe.Gifts website all the time so you’re sure to find something else you’d like to make once you’ve finished this one.
