It's a craft alot of the ladies in my family have done, but something I never tried myself. But that changes now. At my local Goodwill I picked up these acrylic coasters from that came with a cross stitch pattern and a piece of Aida cloth (the fabric with those little squares that you use for cross stitch). The ugly snowman pattern got tossed, but my creative brain started working and I thought I might try making something fun!
Of course no project starts without a little online research first. Although I'm pretty sure I won't be doing any of these on my first try, they are pretty to look at and give me some great inspiration
I am in love with the colors on this footstool
preppy shoes- love the leopard
These remind me alot of Nantucket
an elephant coin purse- yes please!
flasks, so cute for a groomsmen gift
Hello preppy lady!
Jonathan Adler has cheeky needlepoint pillows
I need to find something to do with cross stitch buttons!
How could I not make this Elephant- in blue and orange would be just perfect!
If I ever finish my coasters I might have to try one of these DIY iphone cases
So many projects, so little time.
Judging from how long its taken me to stitch 1 letter on 1 of my coasters, it will take me months to finish them. Keep an eye out for that post next year sometime.
