Cross Stitch Revisited

Feeling Stitchy has featured some unique and inspiring cross stitch. A fun and easy way to design your own original cross stitch is to use graph paper. Listed below are links to help you get started with a project.

- Patternpatch provides the directions for mapping out your design on graph paper.

- Needlepointers provide free printable graphs. Incompetech does as well but also lets you specify the number and size of the squares.

- Check out Yarntree's Learn to Cross Stitch in 5 Minutes plus its shop where you can find tons of supplies.

- There is a great cross stitch tutorial at Primrose Design.
- Create your own chart with a chart generator at Dark Lilac.

  1. I love your design, Amy, and that you used the waffle weave as a graph - such a great idea!
