Free, simple cross stitch designs

FREE simple charts

Just in time for half - term! Any budding little needleworkers can get stitching with these small, simple designs. Although I have added back stitches to some of the motifs, they can be omitted. Use 2 strands for the cross on 14 count Aida or if preferred 3 strands for the cross stitch on 10 count Aida, remember the size of the design with be larger. Backstitches using one strand should be OK for both fabrics.
