This Week's New Pattern: Pixel People Princesses

We're really excited about this week's new pattern! For months now we've had customers asking us for more "little girl friendly" patterns - and while we think superheroes are also little girl friendly, I know that's not always the case.  This was such a fun pattern to design and stitch - I got to re-watch many of my favourite childhood movies, some of which I hadn't seen in more than a decade!  And I got to use a rainbow of delightfully bright and girly colours - a real change from the superhero palette of blues, reds, greys, and black that I'm used to.  I loved every moment of designing and stitching this pattern - it made me feel like a little girl again myself.

I've deliberately kept this pattern simple - there are no fractional stitches, only one french knot, and just a little bit of backstitching - so that you can use it to teach the princess lovin' little girl in your life how to cross-stitch.  So sit her down with some floss and fabric and her favourite princess and give her the tools to create a lifetime long love with a calming and satisfying hobby!

Want to see the whole thing?   Yeah, I thought you might...

The pattern is for personal use only and is available for instant download here.


  1. My five year old has just lost her mind over this, and I quote, "I just thought I was going to faint when I saw it".

    Be back later to buy!

  2. Beautiful!! i kinda have a thing for superheroes but i have to admit the princesses are awesome =) great work

  3. I love that you put them in chronological order.

  4. I was looking for a collection of girl superheros. This will do in the meantime! I'll have to figure out how to work in Sofia the first (she's the new princess).

  5. Adorable!

    I really hope you don't mind my asking...would you ever consider doing a Community pattern? If questions like this are a major irritant, just disregard! :)
