Pinterest Project: Cross Stitch Diamond Arrowhead

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.

DSC_0091I’ve never actually made my own pattern before.  The finished product doesn’t quite follow what I plotted out on the graph paper.

DSC_0085I 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.

DSC_0089DSC_0087The 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!

DSC_0092As 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!
