When life gives you time, make giant tapestries! We’ve been home now for a few months due to COVID social distancing, so I figured it was a great time to start a cross stitch project the size of a 12-year-old. 🙂
I made this amazing Alice in Wonderland silhouette cross stitch pattern the other day and I wanted it BIG. It’s 32×45.29 inches, on a 14 count fabric! It only uses one color though, so it shouldn’t be too bad, right? …….. Right? I’m going to use 3 strands of black DMC 310 throughout so it’s a thicker weave.
Here’s a video I made of me putting the 36 page chart together:
Here’s a picture of my 3-year-old next to the pieced together pattern. It’s 100% bananas.
It all begins with one stitch:
Here’s a picture of me stitching on a 59 inch Aida cloth. It definitely takes a little bit to get used to:
Week one done, and feeling good:
I’m excited about the process and I hope you’ll join me on my journey! Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebookfor weekly photo updates, and let me know what you think of this project! Here’s a link to the chart, if you’d like to stitch it along with me, too!
Thanks so much for crafting with me, and happy stitching! xoxo
