  • Free Octopus Cross-Stitch Pattern from Aime Ceci

    March 3, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    octopus

    Cross-stitch this underwater creature for a set of velvet-backed throw pillows! I'd love to see the octopus in violet and the chevron background in rainbow colors. Aida cloth is available on the 4th floor, embroidery floss on the 3rd floor, and velvet on the 2nd floor.  Free pattern by the talented Aime Ceci.

    I'd like to be under the sea
    In an octopus' garden in the shade
    He'd let us in, knows where we've been
    In his octopus' garden in the shade.

  • Cross-Stitch Your Heart on Your Sleeve

    January 25, 2013 by Britex Fabrics

    Cindy, Steph, and Hayley from the blog meet.make.laugh’s motto is "A day without laughter is a day wasted" (Charlie Chaplin.) Our motto is “Wear your heart on your sleeve” (Gallagher, Lyle.) Steph and Cindy made this tutorial for an easy-peasy project that would be perfect for Valentine’s day. Keep your honey warm and show the love by stitching hearts on their sweater or shirt sleeves.  Steph and Cindy sewed them onto the elbows; however you could just as easily express yourself with a delicate (or sturdy) heart on your bicep! Aida cloth is available on Britex Fabrics' 4th floor, and needles and floss is available on our 3rd floor.
