The Kiss Cross Stitch Pattern

$5.99 USD

Cross Stitch for Lovers

Bring some old-world romanticism into your home with this fantastic 19th century cross stitch replica. We think you’ll love stitching the intricate detail of the woman’s bustled gown and her lover’s trendy man-bag and overcoat. It’s French fashion at it’s finest.



The Kiss Cross Stitch Pattern features a trendy Parisian couple embracing at the front door. It’s a replica of an 1885 painting by French artist Auguste Toulmouche.

The Project

This is a large, full coverage project that measures 54.4cm x 80.6cm when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth (300 x 444 grid area). The project requires 137 different DMC colours and has 133,200 cross stitches.

It’s quite a tricky piece because we’ve used a lot of confetti to replicate the fine detail of the woman’s peach-pink gown, the brightly lit chandelier, and the warm orange glow from the hallway lighting that illuminates the couple’s affectionate reunion. If you’re up for the challenge we think you’ll be delighted with the finished work.

PLEASE NOTE: We recommend using the Pattern Keeper App to manage this complex project, so we’ve included an extra chart in your download pack that has been specially formatted for PK.

The Artist
