This week I am once again inspired by cross stitch! This Cross stitch Bunny Canvas on Cutesy Crafts takes just a few skeins of floss and a blank canvas to complete.
I’d love to experiment with a few cheery Easter-themed shades of DMC floss or maybe some Color Variations floss for an ombré effect.
This Owl Canvas Tutorial on MomSpark is another adorable canvas idea – this time using inexpensive burlap stretched over a frame and brightly colored yarn.
I think it would look equally adorable on a vintage fabric background, with some bright DMC floss – using all six strands will make for a chunkier, dramatic look.
This would make a wonderful first project for younger stitchers, or someone looking to try cross stitch for the first time!
These Cute Monsters Cross Stitch Buttons on Craft Foxes are an adorable way to use up your smaller bits of leftover Aida cloth (or, a perfect excuse to buy up a bevy of bright new shades!) A handful of bold colored flosses are perfect for this project.
The sweet monsters would also be super-cute as a sampler with a child’s name for a play room.
I adore the bold, whimsical use of cross stitches on this Patchwork Doorstop on Imagine Gnats.
Instead of stitching on a rigid grid, this tutorial has you randomly stitch your x’s in four colorful shades of DMC floss, for a beautiful graphic effect.
Who would have thought that cross stitches can have such a free-spirited style!
