Branch­ing out

Cross Stitch Crazy - - Designfinder -

I’m ready to try stitch­ing on some­thing other than aida or even­weave. I’m sure I saw kits where the de­sign was printed on the fab­ric... Kaylee Farn­ham, Chard You’re right, Kaylee, you can get kits where the de­sign is printed onto the fab­ric. You work your stitches by pierc­ing this close-weave cot­ton fab­ric, rather than push­ing your nee­dle up and down through ob­vi­ous holes as you would when stitch­ing on aida. I love the Geom­e­try Rules range de­signed by Rachel Parker for DMC, which is per­fect for be­gin­ners to this tech­nique. The de­sign pic­tured here, Pixel Na­tion (TB113), fea­tures a pat­tern of tri­an­gles in an ar­ray of cool colours. It mea­sures 13x19cm (5x7½in) and is worked on cot­ton fab­ric. You can buy it for £10.99 when you visit www.deb­scrossstitch.co.uk or by call­ing 01253 771 230. I hope this helps!
