Great links in this thread!  I'm tempted to do the Peter Rabbit, "Fierce, bad rabbit" scene from the French site. That story still makes kids eyes widen with concern.

Dover publications carries a pattern book of Beatrix Potter images.  They are already to go for embroidery.
I love Dover because they are SOOOOO affordable.  Just google Dover and search their site.

check out Dover books' webpage
dover has a huge variety of vintage and ethnic art, as well as clip art in both books and cds.  but if you are cheap like me, go over to the right hand side where it says "free samples" and sign up for thier list -- every week they send you sample pages of 6 different books!  tons of line drawings and vintage labels and coloring pages and so forth, many of which can easily become embroidery patterns!  they are also good for collaging.

Speaking of pattern resources - and not to self-promote, but to inform and request input - I've created some patterns with alternative designs on vanishing paper (use it one time then it washes, steams, or tears away). Here's the link:


Again, they're use once patterns (not the great iron-on type transfers like Jenny at Sublime does. She's da bomb!), and they're by no means professional artwork, but they're offbeat and amuse me.  Grin

They're kinda in beta mode and I'd love to have a few 'testers' try the process out. They work great for me but it's always good to get feedback and tips from others. If anyone is interested, PM me. I'd love to send out a pattern or two, to a few fellow embroiderers, to get input!

Hi all -- so glad people are re-discovering Dover! For many many years it's been a great place (pre-PC & pre-Web, just about The Only place!) for finding really wonderful adaptable or useable-as-is embroidery designs & patterns --- tho since I do only 'regular' embroidery I honestly wouldn't know if any of Dover's stuff is suitable for crosstitch unless it specificallys say so -- also, I almost never embroider 'realistic' things like scenery, people, etc, but mainly  stylistic patterns/designs or fairly simple, line-drawing type images.

A while back at Craftster, I had read that some people find interesting embroiderable patterns & designs & letters/initials at the many websites which offer free downloadable fonts & also free downloadable "dingbats" -- picture fonts, I guess you could call those? ...

which gave me yet-another idea:
Microsoft's Clip Art site, also free.

The images there download directly into Microsoft Clip Gallery, which presumably comes with all recent Windows operating systems (as computer-illiterate as I am, all I know is that it was indeed 'just sittin there' in XP, lol).

Just for example, in a clip art search for flowers [[I searched clip art only, not photos, motion etc]], I discovered quite a number of simple but surprisingly pretty "floral designs" in styles from vaguely Jacobean to vaguely Art Deco to vaguely Victorian to vaguely Pennsylvania Dutch... ! 
In many of the different clip art categories there's a wide variety of simple, useful, line-drawing type images too...
computers, birthday cakes, coffee cups, teapots, balloons, suns-moons-stars, shells, angels, Christmas trees, etc etc etc.
