Welcome to my free patterns library!
Starting November 1st 2018, I’m adding new, free patterns to this library on the first of each month. Each download is free to all Ugly Duckling House email subscribers. Check back regularly to get the latest designs!
Free Cross Stitch Patterns
To download, click on the LINK below the photo of the pattern you want, and your download should begin. If you click on the PHOTO thumbnail, it will take you back to the post that corresponds with the release of the pattern. That’s because there may be information in the blog post that isn’t included in the downloaded patterns (or suggestions on color combos), so consult the post if you get stuck or have a question that is specific to that pattern.
Limited Releases & “Buy Now” Links, Explained
If you see patterns with future dates or “Buy Now” links (such as later 2020 or 2021!), they have either not yet been released yet (the dates are listed below the photos) or were available for a special occasion only. The links to these patterns are for purchasing in Etsy shop until they are released on schedule.
If you have an idea for a pattern, feel free to submit your ideas to me on one of my cross stitch pattern blog posts.
Have you made one of my patterns? I’d love to see it! Please tag me on Instagram so I can see your work and give you a virtual high-five!
COPYRIGHT: These plans are copyrighted works created by me (Sarah Fogle – Ugly Duckling House) and for personal use only. The resulting product or plans are not to be sold or reprinted commercially (feel free to make these for your home and to gift them to friends, but do not create these for a business, sell them or make them into kits to sell, or any other business use without purchasing a commercial license from me).
From time to time, I may update patterns to reformat them or to correct errors without notice.
As always, you can email me with any questions at contact [at]
Limited Release Patterns
Sometimes (pretty rare!) I’ll release a pattern for free for a very limited time (such as International Women’s Day) and then move it to my Etsy shop for purchase. Once these move to my Etsy shop, they are no longer available for free download and will not be again! Follow the links below to buy.
How to Use This Page
Current subscribers (or if you recently subscribed on this form and are returned back to this page): enter the name and email address you subscribed with, and it will open the page links.
If you aren’t yet an email subscriber, please enter your info. You’ll receive a welcome email in your inbox that has a confirmation link to subscribe (be sure to check your spam folder if you don’t see that email… it happens sometimes!). Once your subscription is confirmed, it will direct you back to this page to enter your info again (or simply return back to this page and enter your info again). This will basically serve as your login and password to get to the library page!
At the top of this page, you should see a subscribe box asking for your info. If you don’t see it yet, consider these next steps:
- wait for the full page to load (the text might load faster than the subscribe box, so you may have to wait for the full page to load)
- try turning off any pop-up blockers or ad blockers for this website (I don’t know if this impacts it or not… but I depend on income from this site while making my plans free, so folks like me would appreciate that regardless as I work hard to keep content free!)
If you’re still having trouble and want help, please shoot me an email at contact [at] uglyducklinghouse [dot] com (replace the at with @ and the dot with an actual period . — I have to put my email address on the page like this to make it harder for bots to spam me! It also helps if you whitelist that same email address by adding it to your address book/contact list, since that’s where my email updates will come from). Please have patience if you don’t get an immediate response; I make these for fun.
Don’t Want to Wait for Future Patterns?
Future patterns have already been released if you know where to look! Once you have access to the library, you’ll notice that I have previews for all the future patterns I plan to release each month (through 2020!). If you are too excited to wait for a particular month, that’s ok; I have made some of my patterns available for purchase in my Etsy shop, too (I plan to upload them all eventually, but it takes considerable effort to put all this together and my main job is still working on projects). Because of this, I do not email patterns for free if you have trouble subscribing. I will happily help you troubleshoot where along the subscription process you may have gotten stuck, but I will not honor requests to email patterns.
Have an idea for a pattern you want to suggest?
Leave a comment below to let me know of your ideas! I have all of 2020 already designed, but you may see yours someday on this page!
