Cross Stitcher - - Contents -

We thought we’d try some­thing fun this month by adding lit­tle ap­pliqué clothes to dress up your cross stitch. It’s a bril­liant way to use up fabric scraps, as well as be­ing su­per -quick too! We have three dif­fer­ent ideas for you to try, our first is this mini wash­ing line with its cute cross stitch clothes and pretty polka dot ap­pliqué dress. Next, we’ve added a lit­tle, gath­ered ap­pliqué skirt to a lit­tle stitched fig­ure. And our fi­nal de­sign is this sweet lit­tle sausage dog, com­plete with mini flo­ral coat!
