Large cross stitch

Postby amanda_s » Sun Jun 12, 2016 9:17 am

How would you go about making an extra large cross stitch pattern? I've tried googling this in multiple ways and I've been unsuccessful in finding a tutorial in a way to piece the fabric together, or if the pattern needs to be split into multiple small sections to be joined later, and how to do the joining. Does anybody have any tips for something that will be larger and wider than a typical yard of aida cloth?

I've seen pics here on SpriteStitch where members pieced together multiple pieces of aida, and here's a topic...viewtopic.php?f=6&t=15013
Hope it helps!!!

You could also try and find a place that either sells it by the yard or sells larger pieces. What count and size are you looking for?
