Quick recap: I've always loved cross stitching, but I've never learned to make my own patterns. I decided to use Amelia as a guinea pig on creating cross stitch patterns. You can download the "Welcome Stormageddon" pattern on our Dropbox here.
I've officially completed the pattern and wanted to share a few things with you. Firstly, the finished product:
|Based on the pattern and the weave of cross stitch material I utilized, ever 8 stitches = 0.5 inches|
|I used a pencil and traced the straight edges of what I wanted to be included in the mount. Since I was not going to be framing it and having the luxury of hiding rough edges, the straight lines were necessary.|
