Hi friends! We’re gearing up for our 12 Days of Stitchy Ornaments and so I thought it would be a great time to do a beginner cross stitch video series. That way everyone can join in the fun! I’m breaking it into a few parts to make it a little easier. Last week we talked all about my favorite supplies, and today we’re getting down to business with some actual stitching!
In this video, I used 14-count white Aida with two strands of DMC floss. But you can substitute in any fabric and floss you prefer.
