Sometimes you just don’t like working on a cross stitch pattern, or maybe you want to design a pattern of your own. So we’ve combined over 50 free cross stitch fonts and alphabets for you to download and use for free. Patterns increase in size as they go down the page. Just click the image to get a higher resolution version.
Most include upper case, lower case and numbers.
These alphabet patterns are provided for free private use. They can be used for any private pattern, however if you wish to use in a commercial setting, please contact me to ask permission (they’re free for commercial use too).
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)
Lastly, we have a few updates from people still stitching the pattern. The first is Stitched_Pixels who gave us the below update back in 2018, with just over 45% of the pattern complete; 8 years in. You can follow her progress on her flosstube.
A more recent update from Sophie Greene, at about 40% from 2020 is stitched in a different way, but really shows how big it will be. Stitched on 25 count, 1 over 1.
Some of the most requested Pokemon patterns out there, and seen as some of the most epic are Servotron’s epic Pokemon cross stitch patterns.
We’ve compiled all 5 of Servotron’s patterns and an additional 6 and 7th generations by Shadow_Nova, showing the first 7 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), 102 (generation 6) & 103 (generation 7) DMC
I can’t tell you how many people have requested this pattern; it’s frankly 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, it’s 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!
