I don’t know about you, but I’ve grown tired of super traditional and heavy looking cross stitch design. Cross stitch is appealing to every generation of stitcher, and I’d like to see more contemporary patterns available! I went searching and found 17 modern Christmas cross stitch patterns for the modern stitcher!
Most of these shops have so many beautiful modern Christmas cross stitch patterns to choose from. I had a hard time picking out my favourites!
And these don’t just have to be made into hoop decor either. You could stitch these designs onto stockings, banners, table runners, cushions or ornaments.

I mean, come on! Look at these cuties! And you could easily swap out the reds and greens for some blues and pinks to give their little outfits even more pizzaz!
Again with the modern colour scheme! I think that can make all the difference.
Such a peaceful looking fire breather!
