Hi everyone! This summer I picked up cross stitch and I worked for about a month on this project. The pattern comes from a book called Twisted Stitches by Phil Davison. The finished piece is about 5in x 7in.



I want to attach it to something as a patch, any tips on how to go about this?

Thanks for looking!

Super cool! I was thinking about getting that book; are there lots of cool charts in it?

This is my 3rd cross stitch, but the largest one I've completed so far!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I love this!  I've been looking for a Dias de los Muertos sugar skull design for my sister-in-law!  Thanks for the book reference- I'm so happy my library has it!

To make it into a patch, all you would need to do is trim it down, apply some Fray-Check or tightly whip stitch the edges, then applique it to whatever you want.  Smiley
