It's serious now!
We've got a website and everything!
Massive thanks go out to the guys at Coderra for making this tip top internet based creation.
|You will need: a postcard, a ruler, a big sharpish needle, some embroidery threads, a pencil, some scissors and a rubber.|
|Take your ruler and pencil and mark a grid system (i just put some dots at every 0.5 cm interval)where you would like your cross stitch to be on the post card. I marked a grid that was 0.5cm by 0.5cm. Once you've marked your grid out take your needle and poke it all the way through the postcard at every point marked.|
|I decided I was going to do a rose first so i picked out some rose like shades. I found the rose pattern on pinterest.|
|Then it's just a case of copying the pattern from the laptop onto the postcard. Every square on the pattern is equal to one 0.5cm by 0.5cm cross stitch.|
|I thought a tulip would look good to so I sorted one of those out.|
|Here is the rose.|
|Here is the tulip.|
And Hey Presto! A postcard with stitches shaped like crosses on it. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.
Until next time.
Here is a list of things that run through my mind on a daily basis.
