Craft: Deer Cross Stitch Pattern

Way back here I posted about completing a deer cross stitch with a pattern I made myself.

I have had a few Pinterest hits onto this post and last week I had someone ask if I had a pattern. How rude of me not to share before now!

When I was creating off the pattern, I changed it here and there, because let's face it, no one wants a cross stitch with a hangy bit between the legs. Anyway, since I didn't know how to remove it in Photoshop (I'm not very proficient in it), I just left that part off when it came to stitching.

You'll also noticed I gave my deer a bigger hunchback. No reason, except I thought it needed a bigger booty.

Ok, so for the pattern, just right-click to save, then open it in word, or any other program that you can print from and you're good to go. The pattern is larger than what's shown here, but you could resize it anyway, if needed.

If you create one, I'd love to see it, so can you drop a comment with the link? 

Have fun. :)


  1. Super clever you! Love what you did here - and I'm diggin' that bigger booty!! :D

    1. Haha! Yeah, he looked too flat backed. Although for some reason, I also gave him one really skinny leg. Oh well, it's done now and that's that!

  2. I think it looks great! My 9 year old son is super excited. He's been wanting to learn to cross-stitch and wanted me to find a deer pattern; he loves this one and can't wait to do it. Thanks for sharing the pattern!
