Vintage rose: a new freebie for you

Christmas holidays are coming and we would like to wish you all the best with a little freebie…

This lovely cross stitch rose is taken from the book Vintage Cross Stitch Flowers. Our designer, Valentina Sardu, reinterpreted it in her blackwork-plus-cross-stitch style, and here you can see the result!

Blackwork, worked in black and gold, adds a special touch to the vintage motif. The finished embroidery can be framed, used as a quilt block, or turned into a simple ornament completed with a handmade tassel like that in the pictures.

Tropical Fishes: the new collection is here!


We are so excited to tell you that the new collection has finally arrived!
Take a colorful trip around the world with our new three charts inspired by the underwater life of the tropics.

In the Amazon River, a multicolored discus fish, embroidered in cross stitch, is swimming in the company of an angelfish

… Diving into Lake Malawi, we meet three curious African cichlids that dart through the algae on a marbled blue fabric…

… Finally, from the tropical freshwaters of South America and Africa, we move to the Pacific Ocean, where a cute cross-stitched clownfish and a blackwork yellow tang greet us among the corals and anemones of the Great Barrier Reef.

We hope you love the Tropical Fishes Collection as much as we do! These designs will be a nice decorative touch to your home. Use hand-dyed or iridescent fabrics for a unique look, and share the picture of your finished projects on our Facebook page, or on Instagram using the hashtags #ajisaipress#ajisaidesigns. We can’t wait to see your artworks!

Happy stitching!

Woolly & Cosy: a free cross stitch pattern from the Warm Winter Collection

Woolly and cosy by Ajisai Press

 

This brand-new pattern has been designed to perfectly match with our Warm Winter Collection:

It’s so simple and quick that you can easily complete it in a weekend!

 

woolly and cosy - cross stitch freebie - Ajisai Press

 

Our model was stitched using Aurifil Lana wool threads on 11 count wool Aida fabric, to make a really cosy hot-water bottle cover, but if you prefer you can also use the common cotton floss and a higher count evenweave fabric.
