Ok, so we'll admit that at first glance cross stitch doesn't really seem that...dynamic. But don't be fooled! There are so many rad ways you can use this stitching skill to make beautiful, unique projects or add fun embellishments to existing ones. Take a look through our latest Get Skilled round up of techniques and inspiration to start stitching your way to some cool new stuff!
Whether it's traditional or surprising (cross stitched shoes? why not!), we've been seeing, and being inspired by, loads of different stitched pieces.
Stitch it Yourself:
From making your own pattern to framing your finished piece, we pulled together all the basic techniques you need to get started.
And leave it to our amazing community to inspire us even further with their fantastic work!
A cross stitched iPhone case like the Red Cross one from Jessica Marquez is a great way add a bit of analog to your digital.
Or how about some one-of-a-kind greeting cards? We love these stitched X-mas ones by Kristen.
We're also fans of keeping it super-simple and super sweet. Lew made this stitched wall hanging for her recently married friends.
But then again, why not go all out like Piper is for her Rose Pillow WIP. We still can't get over how stunning this is!
Now that we've got your full attention, let's get stitchin'!
