Don't tiptoe

Post by peas_and_love »

I got a bit bored and I've wanted to do something with this quote for a while so I made a pattern, hope you like it.

It's on 18 count and came out about 12" by 12"

I'm sorry about the amount of backstitch but I actually quite like it and I think it needs to be there or all the writing would be HUGE!

It's got 7 colours i think so nice and simple. The raindrops look a little odd but they were the best I could do, even with diagonal stitches!

As always, feedback is appreciated,

I have a friend who'd really appreciate this but I'm appalling at backstitch! You're right though, it wouldn't work without it!

I just kind of threw myself in at the deep end with back stitch, and being the perfectionist I am I kept doing it until it came out well. The first cross stitch project I did had back stitch, diagonal stitches and half stitches, looking back it seems a bit mental to start with that but once I'd done it (after a misguided first attempt in which I didn't realise that I needed to separate the floss) it looked really good with the back stitch. So I guess I like back stitch :D

Hey, I know this post is super old but I thought I would add my 2 cents on the raindrops. You can actually make them more 'diagonal' and raindrop-looking if you do the top of the blue parts of them as fractional stitches, then backstitch like normal into a triangle. That way you will end up with no unstitched spaces in between the backstitch and the actual raindrop part. Also, I would like to know what this quote is from? Thanks! ;]
