This week’s free cross stitch pattern is the re-release of our ever popular Goddess Bookmark. She has been around the web and back again several times and I’m happy to present her here in PDF format for you this week as the Bookmarks for Literacy Project kicks off for this year!
I designed her to fit onto a pre-finished bookmark, but of course you can stitch her on any fabric you choose. The design is only two colors, the chart includes the two shades of purple that I used when stitching my own bookmark, but again you can choose any colors from your stash to customize the look of your Goddess. As you can see by the blue stitched example provide by Leigh, Goddess looks fantastic when using an overdyed thread to do the fill in. (Thank you, Leigh, for sharing!)
If you stitch this piece I would love to see your finished work. You can leave a comment here, send me an email, or share your photos on our Facebook community page!
An extra special thank you to My Very Own Mail for sponsoring this pattern to help keep it free for everyone and for working to promote children’s literacy!
