Our moonlight witch cross stitch pattern was inspired inspired by a 19th century painting by Kitsch painter Luis Ricardo Falero.
We just adore the amount of magical energy and movement the artist has created in the design, and we think you’ll love stitching the witch-woman’s luminous red hair and flaming torch.
The cross stitch project is very large and measures 36.3cm x 65.9cm on 14 count Aida cloth. Be sure to check the full-sized preview in the product gallery, as the design is unusually long.
We’ve rated this project ChallengingPLUS as it required a lot of confetti to replicate the dark swirling clouds and the witch’s windswept hair and robes. We recommend using Pattern Keeper App to manage this project and you’ll find an extra chart in your download pack that has been specially formatted for PK.
Love the artwork? The original painting behind our Moonlight Witch cross stitch pattern is called ‘The Witches Sabbath’, but sometimes known as ‘The Festival of the Witches’. It was painted in 1880.
Luis Ricardo Falero was a Spanish painter who lived between 1851 and 1896. He painted the most amazing female nudes, mythical scenes, and fantastical themes. We are thrilled to recreate them here in cross stitch just for you.
