Religion is undoubtedly a major influence across the world and many cross stitchers will have considered stitching a piece that symbolizes their own faith; many have already done this. Well, for those yet to do so, just as with every other type of design that we frequently get the urge to search for, there are hundreds of beautiful religious cross stitch patterns available, both on- and off-line.
Admittedly, the majority of the religious cross stitch patterns available are for the Christian and Catholic faiths.
However, there are a number of established sites that provide religious cross stitch patterns for stitchers from other religious backgrounds.
For example at www.islamiccrossstitch.bravehost.com/ there are a number of patterns based on the art of Arabic calligraphy.
You can even stitch your name in Arabic. While they have others which depict the geometric religious cross stitch patterns that are often associated with the Islam religion.
