When I came across this project at Makezine, I knew that I had to share it. I don’t think that the picture does it justice, but it gives you an idea about how amazing this cross-stitched tapestry is.
Artist Aled Lewis created this 30-foot long, cross-stitched tapestry on a 7 stitch per inch fabric and it has scenes from the entire Star Wars saga. While I don’t have the budget to add this beautiful piece to my home, perhaps I could use it as inspiration to make my own…but on a much smaller scale of course.
If you were lucky enough to get a new iPhone in your stocking this year, you may be looking for a way to personalize it. If you’re a Dr. Who fan, or are simply a fan of a fun Tardis pattern, then this cross-stitch pattern is for you.
Head on over to the Zen of Making to see Haley’s free pattern for this cute cross-stitched iPhone case.
It won’t be long before little trick or treaters will be ringing my doorbell. To help get in the spirit and give my house a festive Halloween decor, I think I’ll start working on this adorable Hoot Owl Cross Stitch Pattern.
I like this pattern because it has all of the typical fall colors, so I can keep it up for Halloween and Thanksgiving. This design isn’t too difficult, yet it has enough detailing to make it fun and interesting. I think I should be able to get it done pretty quickly and have it on display in a few weeks. It’s a good project to take on the road too, since there are plenty of blocks of colors that I can do while waiting in the car for my kids at school.
