This week’s Pinterest Project didn’t really come directly from Pinterest, but rather was inspired by an image I found while browsing Pinterest.
I am a cross stitcher. I picked up the needle about a year and a half ago and haven’t looked back. Most of my stitches I find either free around the internets or buy off of various etsy stores. But this one that I’m sharing today, I actually created myself. It’s based off of this image I found on Pinterest that ended up linking back to a tumblr site. I really don’t know who the artist is; if you do, please let me know so I can give proper credit.
I also decided to not do the drop coming off the arrow. I didn’t like the way it looked when I tried stitching it, so I just removed it. It left my finished product off center since I used a smaller, scrap-ish piece of aida cloth.
The thread I used is actually multi-colored, so it was basically one strand that changes from red to pink to teal to dark teal. Looks really cool, right? I got it at Christmas in a huge pack of a bunch of different and fun colored floss. My mom always knows just what to get me!
As soon as I have the extra money to, I’m buying a pattern-making program I can use on my Mac. And as soon as I do that, I’ll make a PDF of this pattern for those of you looking to try your hand at it. Keep an eye on Day Old Sushi for that in the next couple of weeks!
