Patch Patterns: Text and Letters

Six digitally-created versions of cross stitch pride patches, arranged in two rows of three, against a background of a textured partially-translucent aromantic pride flag. Text between the two rows reads Aro Pride Patches in black type. Patches include a rectangular patch in aroflux zigzag stripes, an idemromantic heart, an aro flag text patch reading "aro", a square in quoiromantic stripes, an arrow design in allo-aro colours and a second arrow in nebularomantic colours.

Here you’ll find all my text and letter patch patterns! For more information on how to sew them, please see my patch pattern tutorial page and my text patch miniseries.

Header links will take you to posts demonstrating sewn examples (if available). Patterns are labelled by height (10, 12 or 15 blocks) and are listed in alphabetical order by identity, followed by multi-identity and alphabet patterns. This page also includes all bonus and non-aromantic patterns.

Notes on Pattern Structure

Full coloured blocks or crosses indicate a full cross stitch.

Letter outlines indicate backstitch.

Blocks or crosses divided on the diagonal by a line of backstitch, each half a different colour, indicate quarter stitches. Please see my first text tutorial for more information on backstitching outlines and placing quarter stitches.

Space for edging your patch is not shown in the patterns below. You’ll need to allow additional blocks for this when cutting your swatch, depending on how narrow or thick you like your edges.
