Modern Cross Stitch Pattern
PDF Instant Download


Santa's on his magical path to bring presents to children around the world with this beautiful modern cross stitch pattern. It features Santa in his sleigh, pulled by five reindeer as they fly through the clouds under a large bright crescent moon. Have fun creating texture and whimsy by using cross stitch, half cross stitch, back stitch, straight stitch, French knots, and star stitches.

This is a digital PDF cross stitch pattern, which means it will be available immediately after purchase (yay!). Watch for a downloadable link sent to your email after your transaction is complete. You can print it on your home printer (or at a copy shop), or view it on your favorite digital device.
