Around here, we’re fanatics about our cross stitching. We have tons of finished work and have an endless greed for new and exciting projects. But, we need to know the finished dimensions of our pieces so that we can buy fabric, so Jeremy, our resident computer genius, has designed one for us.
All you do is …
#1: Fill in the dimensions of your pattern – 127 stitches wide by 178 stitches tall (for example)
#2: Type in the size of your fabric: 14 to the inch is the most common, but 12 and 16 are often used, too
The chart will then give you the dimensions of your new cross stitch treasure.
IMPORTANT: you need at least a 2″ margin on each side. So, if your piece will measure 8″ x 11″, get a piece of fabric that is at least 12″ by 15″
And speaking of cross stitch patterns, look at the beauty above. It’s Van Gogh’s “Irises” and it’s gorgeous, isn’t it? If you’d like to stitch this famous masterpiece, PLEASE let us see your finished result!
