Free - 24 Christmas mini cross stitch and small pixel art designs

Christmas is my favourite time of the year for crafting, and I love sharing crafty ideas and projects on my blog. Recently I've been working on some mini Christmas pixel art designs which are perfect for any cross stitch or Hama bead crafts and I'm sharing them for free below. There are 24 designs, which also makes them ideal for any Advent themed crafts. You could use them with cross stitch to decorate small bags or boxes filled with Advent surprises. 

The patterns could also be used for cross stitch Christmas cards, to make tiny Hama bead embellishments, to decorate bunting, or even for online designs that use pixel art - there are all sorts of possibilities!

I have shared the free designs as images below, and you can also click the links to download them as printable .pdf files.

I have also produced the designs as a blank outline version so that you can come up with your own colour schemes. I'm working on some different colours for the designs that I'll be sharing shortly.

I have also made a Scandi style Christmas cross stitch designs version of the pattern which you can find here - Free Christmas Scandi style mini cross stitch patterns.

Here you can see some of the designs stitched on 14 count Aida. They measure about 2cm square and are very quick to stitch, a great way to use up any scraps of embroidery thread from your stash.

I have also used these Christmas pixel art designs to make a couple of festive crafts using mini Hama beads. My first craft was these Mini Hama bead Christmas embellishments using the tiny mini Hama beads which each measure about the same size as a single cross stitch. They are perfect for Christmas cards or other small Christmas crafting projects.

Then I used some of these embellishments to make some Christmas mini Hama bead pin badges which are a great way to make your Christmas outfit even more festive.
