It’s been an awful long time since I’ve posted hasn’t it! I’m trying to be much more organised but I’m not making any promises lol. My first official finish of 2020 was inspired by this awesome IT balloon lamp I received for Christmas, I was so excited by it that I started doodling the pattern in my notebook that evening and I started stitching on boxing day! If you fancy making your own here’s what you need (including the free downloadable pattern)
- 14 count aida measuring 15x20cm (I use Siesta bar frames to hold my fabric, not a hoop. If you choose to use a hoop you will need a larger piece of fabric.
- DMC thread in blanc, 310 and 666
- Double sided tape
- White card
- 10×15 black Fiskbo frame from Ikea
- You’ll Float Too cross stitch pattern
Once you have finished stitching cut a piece of card to fit inside your frame, trim the stitching until the size matches your piece of card (with the image in the middle) Use the double sided tape to stick the fabric to the piece of card and insert into the frame. (This stitch is also a perfect size to make into a card)
I would love to see your stitches so tag me on Instagram, use #lyndascraftroom or drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
