Here is my very first custom cross-stitch! The design is based off of SillyJonna's cute little Pixel Owl, which I converted into DMC colours and stitched up on cream 14-count canvas. The species is probably a Saw-Whet Owl, if anyone's curious ^^



The design has 14 colours, and is about 3x3.5" big. I had originally bought a decorative little embroidery hoop but it was too small Tongue So it's now in a frame instead!



Here's the reference for the design:

Thanks for looking :3

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
