Your Guide to Discontinued and Hard to Find Cross Stitch Thread – Cross-Stitch

Mother’s Day is coming up soon, and even if your mama didn’t teach you how to cross stitch, you can still thank her for all the things she did teach you with a sweet cross stitched Mother’s Day design.

Here are a few that caught my eye on Etsy if you’re looking for something sweet to stitch for your mom or another special mom in your life.

This hoop art cross stitch design from Stitch Riot Designs features roses and the words Happy Mother’s Day. It measures 89 by 95 stitches, or 6.36 by 6.79 inches on 14 count fabric. It uses seven colors, but you can always change the colors on the flowers if you want.

Mom is literally the focus on this cross stitch pattern with flowers that spell out mom in the negative space. The design is from Hoop Modern Stitch, and it measures 105 by 45 stitches, or 7.5 by 3.2 inches when stitched on 14 count fabric. It uses nine colors.

If you or mom loves brushstroke lettering, this word art Mother’s Day cross stitch pattern is a great one. It uses 11 colors and the stitch area is 125 by 128 stitches. On 14 count fabric it would be 8.66 by 9.05 inches, so it would work in a 10-inch hoop. The design is by Oh My Stitches Shop.

The rose for Mom cross stitch pattern from Lifted Spirit Patterns is super sweet, but you’ll probably have to click through to be able to read it. This one is 175 by 126 stitches and uses 10 colors. On 14 count fabric that would be 12.5 by 9.1 inches.

While we’re on the subject of sweet, this one from If I Was a Stitch Girl says it all: Home is where my mom is. This one is shown using just two colors but it would be easy to add more. I think the little scrolly parts would look great in variegated thread, too. Whatever you choose, the design is 5.5 by 3.5 inches and is made to fit perfectly in a 4 by 6 inch frame.
