This cross stitch was started 6/3 and finished 6/16. I needed a fast turn around so it could be mailed to my cousin in Texas.
Everything starts as a blank canvas. This is the first time I have cut enough fabric that I didn’t have to worry if I would stitch right off the side. I’m learning and making progress making non kit cross stitches.
I chose this pattern from a library book I checked out. My cousin was really into clowns as a kid, he had them all over his room. So when I saw this I immediately thought of him and looked up his birthday to make sure I could get it done for this year.
It took a little time to pick a color for this card. I wanted to keep it bright and not clash too much. I think it turned out just right. I even got the square cut just the right size. It may not have cut in the exact right spot I wanted, but it was the right size. Like I said, I’m learning and getting better at this!
If anyone is interested in a cross stitch card, I plan to start selling them once I finish my personal card list.
