Cross Stitched Gift Box
Posted on 16 April 2012
Cross-stitching is a celebrated and accepted style of decorative embroidery.
A cross stitched pattern will typically have numerous stitches in a cross shaped pattern.
The combination of the patterns come together to form the image or design.
The two most popular forms of cross-stitch embroidery are counted cross stitching and stamped cross stitching.
Each form has a variety of options and patterns available.
Cross stitch is fun and easy to learn! It requires only a few supplies:
- Graph. This is the pattern or design you chose to stitch. There are thousands of free patterns available on the net to choose from.
- Floss. Embroidery floss is a cotton thread used for stitching.
- Embroidery hoop. A plastic embroidery hoop is helpful to hold the fabric while you stitch.
