Selling the cross stitch patterns you’ve created is one way of the best ways to get money for your hobby. With years of past experience and success, we’ve worked together to offer a FREE guide to help anyone that needs it called “The Ultimate Guide To Selling Cross Stitch Patterns Online”.
The guide has been created over the last 6 years by three cross stitch pattern sellers on Etsy, with the specific focus on selling cross stitch. Unlike other guides on the internet we’ve made sure that every word is valuable to you. This includes over 40 tips from other Etsy stores, setting up your own store, checklists, examples, best practices, copyright issues, creating patterns, marketing, advertising, and much more.
The guide is beginner friendly and covers everything you need to know selling on Etsy, from the very basics to the most effective SEO techniques. Here are a few topics from the book:

This is the big one. The most outrageous and insanely huge pattern I’ve found anywhere on the internet. It’s a combination of the first 5 generations of Pokemon, using generation 5 sprites. It’s basically a combination of the separate 5 epic pokemon generations cross stitch patterns we posted last week. It’s a massive 798,000 stitches, with the finished piece well over a meter wide and tall on 14 count (almost 1.5m x 2m). If you attempt it, I salute you!
Stitch Count: 798w x 1000h Finished Size: 57″ x 71.5″ or 145cm x 182cm (14ct) Number of colors: 234 (DMC)
A few people have requested both color and black and white versions of the pattern. I’m working of this currently, however due to its size the program keeps crashing… :/
Lastly, the only person so far that is still stitching the pattern is samarin6 who last gave us the below update back in 2015, with just over 25% of the pattern complete; 3 years in.
Some of the most requested Pokemon patterns out there, and seen as some of the most epic; Servotron’s epic Pokemon cross stitch patterns. We’ve compiled all 5 of the versions, showing the first 5 generations of Pokemon in the generation 5 Pokemon sprites. Each pattern is the same size, and uses the same 105 master colors.
Stitch Count: 256w x 450h Finished Size: 18.3″ x 32.1″ or 46.4cm x 81.6cm (14ct) Number of colors: 105 (generation 1), 101 (generation 2), 105 (generation 3), 103 (generation 4) & 101 (generation 5) DMC
These patterns have been completed a few times (and we’ve even posted a few on the blog) and one of the greatest was by Eponases.
I can’t tell you how many people have requested this pattern; its franky shocking. However I used to sell it, but I’ve decided to help out the video game cross stitch community with this awesome space invader simple plan school cross stitch pattern. It was also one of the first patterns I ever made… Oh the memories!
With Christmas on the horizon its not too surprising that people have been asking me for my Pokemon baubles. These are actually designed by ristvak over at SpriteStitch but I was the first to stitch them, so I still get asked about them all the time!
I’ve seen a few versions of these, including some swell ones with neon bulbs on pikachu, so go nuts and experiment!
Oh the Pokemon goodness! This free epic pokemon cross stitch pattern has been created using generation 2 sprites, but it only contains the original 151 Pokemon. It was actually made by the Pokemon company too.
Stitch Count: 414w x 394h Finished Size: 30″ x 28″ or 75cm x 71cm (14ct) Number of colors: 94 (DMC)
