Stuff I Made: Cross Stitch Portrait.


I finished our cross stitched family portrait yesterday. We are all pretty stoked about it. The templates came from Martha Stewart (here), but the executive decisions were all left up to me. For instance, our skin colors. Tessa's hairdo. Nekos's widow's peak. My red shoes. Nekos says Tessa looks 12. I say she will grow into her height :). And I left some room to, you know, add another caramel-skinned baby one of these days.

  1. This is so adorable! I used to love cross-stitch, but haven't done it in so long. Thank you for the MS link; it looks like there are some cute ideas there!

  2. I love how this turned out! I am going to do it as a gift for my sister-in-law. I know she'll love it. Did you use 14 count or 8?

  4. I LOVE this! I saw a watercolor whimsical family portrait on a photo wall I pinned to pinterest, but haven't ever got around to making it. But I can't get it out of my head, so after seeing this, I have renewed inspiration!
