playing with cross stitch and double cross stitch. Still counts as one stitch, right...? ;-)
Ok, neither stitch look like they would if they were stitched on proper cross stitch fabric.. they're loose cross stitches. Or something. I stitched on vintage fabric like Julie, but instead of using the design on the fabric as my 'pattern', I decided to stitch in the space between.
I quite like how it turned out! I really wasn't sure what the end result was going to be like when I started. I really like how the stitches add texture to the fabric, but you can still the flowers.
Have you tried a one stitch challenge like this? Please share in the &Stitches Flickr group. We'd love to see it!
