Personalize your cross stitching with Stitch People! Create your own family and friends with these super cute DIY patterns!
I got this book for Christmas and just had to share it with all of you. Sometimes I get things and just want to talk about them and this is one of those things. (This is not paid content.) My mother taught me to cross stitch when I was eight years old. I cross stitched pillows for my Tri Delta little sisters when I was in college. Baseball playoffs make me nervous so I like to cross stitch to give myself something to do. This year for Christmas, I cross stitched a little something for all of my office staff. Seriously. I love it. So when I opened the Stitch People book from my sister I was so excited!
Cross Stitching with Stitch People
Stitch People is like playing with paper dolls. There are all sorts of combinations and pairings you can choose from to customize the portrait you are creating. She’s even included pets, hobbies, and fonts for you to choose from to really make it special.
Lizzy begins the book with basic cross stitching information and how to create a pattern using the book. She even provides step by step tutorials for the more complicated stitches.
She even provides blank cross stitch templates to work your pattern. This book is filled with different faces and body types to mix and match.
You can customize it further by adding something related to their hobbies!
Is that not THE cutest?! I am having so much fun creating my own little patterns. The book also includes several page full of different fonts to use in your portraits.
I went through all of my embroidery floss and decided to create my own specialized box specifically for working with these patterns. Lizzy outlines several color palettes for skin and hair color in the back of the book. I took my book to Michaels and grabbed the colors I was missing plus a new box for storage.
I cut the pattern for the outside of the box with my Cricut Maker! You can learn more about Cricut HERE! Can you believe how small those cuts are?
