This pattern was originally featured in Cross Stitch Magazine and now can be downloaded for free for you to make. Celebrate your patriotism with this charming stars and stripes-themed sampler. Using a combination of Sampler Threads and DMC floss, the design was cross stitched over two fabric threads on Shell Linen (28 count) and custom framed. If you want to stitch using floss colors only, they have provided DMC substitutes for the Sampler Threads. In order to get the pattern for free you have to add it to your cart and log in to your Leisure Arts account or create a new one but there is no credit card requirements and once you have an account you can easily download several of the other free patterns they have available.
