Patriotic Cross Stitch Patterns

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, so to celebrate in style, we’re bringing you some star-spangled cross stitch designs to adorn your home. When it comes to cross stitch, there are so many fun patriotic designs to choose from, and most of them require just a few colors. Do you have red, white and blue? Then you’re ready to go!

We’ve gathered several American flags to stitch. Scroll on to see some of the patriotic designs:

1. American Spirit

Does your heart ring true for the red, white and blue? If so, this darling American Spirit design by It’s Sew Emma is sure to warm your heart as well as your home! There are a few ways you can display this, and Kimberly made one version into a cute little pillow which you can see in this tutorial.

This design was originally featured in the Stitch Quarterly Cross Stitch Subscription.

2. Glory

Glory by Bent Creek is a sweet design that pays tribute to the flag. At just under 3″ tall, it’s the perfect piece to add to a ledge or bookshelf for some patriotic flair.

3. The Flag

Alphabet sampler, meet stars and stripes! The alphabet twinkles on The Flag by Bent Creek. When stitched on 16 Count Aida, it finishes around 4.125″ x 5.75″ making it suitable for a 5″ x 7″ picture frame. Kimberly stitched hers (pictured below) on 14 Count Aida.

4. Flag of Stars

The stars shine bright on this design by Bent Creek. The Flag of Stars Cross Stitch Kit comes with 18ct Linen cross stitch cloth and five DMC Pearl Cotton Floss colors.

5. Quaker Flag

This design by The Stitcherhood is perfect for a patriotic holiday. Quaker Flag has the star design we know and love. You can really get creative on the finishing here with a wooden cutout of the Unites States and ribbon to match!

  1. I love your Christmas version. So many ideas to explore various seasons of the same pattern.

  2. I love the sage green, red, and gray. I used a similar line for the Jolly Snowflake quilt last summer.
