Our Little Flower Pot cross stitch pattern was inspired by traditional Quaker embroidery stitched in the 18th and 19th century. Your charts include 3 x colour variations including shell pink, plum, and apricot.
The finished piece measures 8cm x 8cm (44 x 44 grid) when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth and requires 4 different DMC colours. Extra Pattern Keeper charts are included in your download pack.
It would make a beautiful greeting card, bookmark — or as part of a full cross stitch sampler. We’ve used it to decorate tote bags and canvas wallets.
If you’re interested in the history of embroidery, check the Benton County Historical Society for examples of the little flower pot cross stitch in an actual vintage sampler (Susanna S. Furman, 1831). You’ll also find variations of the little floral spray on the famous Ann Grimshaw sampler.
