Free Stained Glass Patterns

Use free stained glass patterns and design ideas for crafting your own stained glass suncatchers, lampshades, panels, windows and candle holders. It can be both artistically rewarding or even profitable, depending on your inclinations.

Creations made from free stained glass patterns will enhance your home or garden, and make great gifts for family and friends. Free stained glass patterns are also useful for making small projects such as suncatchers and candleholders, or larger project like panel lamps and full windows. They can be easily adapted for other crafts, and easily be adapted into: glass painting patterns, stained glass quilt patterns, mosaic patterns, rug hooking patterns, Gallery Glass patterns, scrollsaw patterns,kite patterns (kaleido patterns), silk painting patterns or even miniature doll house decorations. Hexagons are perfect stepping stones patterns. They can be a fun substitute for children's coloring books! For quilt or stepping stone patterns, some enlargement or simplification may be necessary. Many enjoy digitizing the stained glass patterns and for machine embroidery using the colored thumbnails as a template.

Chantal's Stained Glass Patterns

The original stained glass patterns and designs on my site are different from the pdf patterns posted by stained glass suppliers wishing to attract customers. They are pen and ink drawings and designs with little or no digital processing. I sincerely believe that a hand-drawn stained glass pattern gives more convincing, natural-looking results than those that are made digitally. There is a certain quality that the hand can achieve, but stained glass design software can never hope to achieve, and that translates into warmth in the finished product.

I have set up this website to provide the visitors with easy navigation. However, this limits the number of patterns I am able to feature within this format, and I now consider "Chantal's Stained Glass" to be full. All my most recent stained glass patterns are now added to my new, similar website Chantal's Stained Glass Patterns. If you make use of the site updates page, you will find that I continue to list the new patterns on this website, even though they are in fact posted on my new site (identifiable with a black background, and a different logo).

You will find patterns and designs that may be inspired by Louis Comfort Tiffany, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mondrian, art nouveau, flowers (floral), fish, bird as well as in Celtic, traditional, oriental, prairie or medieval traditions. Look for the many oval, hexagon or circle framed stained glass patterns. Also, you will find patterns not only for suncatchers or small beginner panels. Many of the patterns offered are for crafting high-end elaborate lampshades, but some of the lampshades are simple enough for beginners. Designs for special projects include tissue box covers (tissue cozies), mirrors, window corners, candleholders, sconces, stained glass boxes, clock faces, glass wreaths, mirrors, photo frames and even full size windows. The most ambitious stained glass pattern is the 'Wisteria and Chickadees' window, with over 1500 pieces (I have made a smaller oval with fewer pieces containing the same design elements, also). If you are looking for stained glass bird feeder pattern, I have made several in the Gazebo style that can be found on another site of mine, ART:ERY Stained Glass Patterns.

Printing Your Free Stained Glass Patterns

Your pattern is the black and white cartoon below the colored thumbnail.

If you don't see the black and white pattern, that means the pattern is for sale. A price is indicated, and I email you the pattern when I receive the payment. Patterns that are for sale do not look significantly different from those you see offered for free.

If you have a color printer, you may wish to print the colored image in order to match colors at your local stained glass supplier.

To print your favorite stained glass patterns, right-click on the black and white cartoon image, and save to your computer. Open it in "MS Paint" - a bare bones graphic program available with Windows. You can use MS Paint to enlarge patterns. One of the interesting properties of this program is that it's too dumb to fit the patterns to a single page size, so that if your patterns is larger than one page, it'll spill the contents over several pages. Just assemble the pattern pages with adhesive tape.

For further instructions, please consult these pages on enlarging stained glass patterns and on printing stained glass patterns.

Stained Glass Pattern Search

If you are looking for a particular pattern on this website, use the new Google website search function. With over 500 stained glass patterns and ideas, you don't want to miss the stained glass pattern you have been searching for, if it's there.

If you wish to browse patterns from websites other than mine, I highly recommend you make use of the Stained Glass Pattern Directory. Unlike other listings, the Directory features all sites that offer stained glass patterns, including sites that sell patterns, for the greatest amount of variety - all are there, from the largest to the smallest. The listings are labelled with a "for sale" or for "free" button to expedite your search in the event that you are specifically looking for free patterns.

Furthermore, whenever a website on the list is amenable to it (enough patterns, listed by name), I've added convenient search boxes that allow visitors to search them from the Stained Glass Pattern Directory page.

You may also be interested in searching for pattern by topic, rather than by individual website, in which case Find Stained Glass Patterns is the website for you!

Make sure to add these two sites to your bookmarks! They are the best of their kind. Won't you let them become your portal to the world of online stained glass patterns?

Still having questions? Ask on a forum!

There are many forums on the internet that are great resources for you if you have technical or artistic questions, or simply with to network with other glass hobbyists, craftspeople, and established artists.

The The Glass Artist aims to serve the whole community of glass artists, from glass blowers, to casters, and bevellers. It's all there. It's a great place for you to acquaint yourself with all the wonderful art that can be made from glass.
