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!

Watch Erica’s Easy Beginner Cross Stitch Tutorial Part 2 here:

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.

Download the JOY Stitchy Ornament PDF pattern here!

If you missed part 1, watch my Easy Beginner Cross Stitch Tutorial Part 1 video here!

Stay tuned next week for Part 3!
