Cross stitching is not at all a new thing, but it seems to have changed slightly and it’s now trendy. Not just in interiors, but also in fashion. I know, I was thinking the same thing.. boring right, but no I’ve actually found some really fab stuff. I think it’s been taken a step further than our traditional cross stitched cushion covers. I do remember my Grandad had one in his car.. hm..
This is an oversized hand-made embroidery rug made of felt. You can choose your pattern and cross stitch all you like. Looks like fun to me!
I did a quick cross stitch DIY this morning. I simply downloaded a free cross stich font. Chose the letter X and made it size 250. Printed it out and put the printed X over the cover of my notebook. I then drew all the crosses with a pencil. I made sure I could see the marks on the book cover and then I used a white chalk board felt pen to draw (or write) my X. EASY!
So I don’t think we can say that cross stitch is boring any more. Hope you’ve found some inspiration in my Tuesday Tips post. If you have any relevant projects please link below so we can have a look. Will you be following the cross stitch trend?
