My First Cross Stitch

I wanted to start cross stitching last year, but never got round to it. Then, my sister started earlier this month, so I decided to start, too! I found this fox pattern on Etsy for a couple of pounds, and since I couldn't find any free ones I liked, decided to buy it. It took me about 4 or 5 days to complete, and I decided to keep and frame it in the hoop because I liked the look of it. It's not perfect (and the camera flash is making some fabric show through the thread), but it's now proudly hanging in my room. I've already started another little project, and that should be done in a week or so. It's an Indian themed elephant pattern that I found amongst many images on Google. There's no actual cross stitch pattern, but you can recreate it just from looking at the image! After this, I'd like to attempt this Paris design (also found on Etsy):

Have you started a new hobby recently? Do you cross stitch?


  1. Well done, it looks great :) I wish I could do this x

  2. It looks great Lou, awesome job! Will be lovely to see all your future projects too, you could hang it all on your wall like a little gallery! :)

  3. Ahh I used to do these when I was younger, they're oddly quite fun.

  5. So cute! I started my first cross stitch last year and still haven't finished it! x

  6. I used to love doing cross stitch when I was younger but I haven't done any for years due to not really having the time. I love the look of the Paris one and am actually quite tempted to give it a go again. Where did you find it on Etsy? x
