DIY Cross Stitch Everything

I might becoming a little paranoid about this after too much internet lurking, but I swear little embroidery gnomes are going all around the design world and punching little holes in things to embroider everything. Seriously, after featuring this embroidered cuff last year, I’ve been seeing cross stitch-able items all over the darn place…

Stitch light from LampGustaf

Embroiderable iphone case from Connect Design

Embroiderable pendants from Panduro Hobby

Embroidered furniture from Gan Rugs

DIY cross stitch cup from Industreal

Embroidery artists have long been drilling holes into things to embroider the previously un-stitchable, like this example or this one, but now companies are just saying “the heck with it” and drilling holes in their own darn stuff. No home decor or accessory item is safe. Anyone else spotted those wayward gnomes drilling into something else I missed?

UT Tutorial – Lace Chandelier

Looking to glam up your next party? Nothing says classy like a chandelier. Especially one doused liberally in glitter.

Yup, you can stitch this! Just grab the freestanding lace design here, and then check out this tutorial on how to put it together and glam it up for your next occasion. You can skip the glitter if you choose, but I think having perpetually sparkly hands also adds to the class, don’t you? Darn skippy.

Embroidered Screen Door Tutorial

Aesthetic Outburst might have tried it once already, but it looks like the idea was just too awesome not to get bigger and better… the embroidered screen door!

She took her original idea and ran with it in a full tutorial as part of a new book titled You Are Awesome. My brain is feverishly trying to find a way to expound on that title without using the word awesome. It’s failing. I’ll get back to you on that.

Lucky for us, she shares the full tutorial and template over on Design*Sponge today! Check it out over there.

Giant Rustic Cross Stitch

Raumseelig had this old board laying around for ages, until she finally discovered what it really wanted to be was the coolest cross stitch canvas ever. See more on her German blog Raumseeling, which you can get google to translate or just ogle the pictures.

Someone find me an old door and a drill stat.

Delicate stitches? Check. Pink satin? Check. Light and lacy skulls? Check and check. Anytime I see pink and pretty and skulls and bones together I’m on board.

These amazing chain stitched pillows are from the series Artnatomy, from artist Cecile Dachary. You can just appreciate the delicate stitches and dark motifs as some great inspiration, or visit Yellow Velvet to actually buy them and find out more about the project. The website is in french, so you’ll want to have google translate on!
