ADD SENTIMENT AND CALM TO YOUR SPACE WITH A SIMPLE BUT MEANINGFUL WORD CLOUD CROSS-STITCH PATTERN WITH WORDS TO LIVE BY!

Have you ever heard of a word cloud?  There are a number of tools online to create your own word clouds, so why not stitch one while you’re at it?

Words to Live By is a very simple cross-stitch pattern, but with oh so much meaning behind it.  These are the words we strive to hear the most in our homes, and now they can hang on your wall!

Let’s take a closer look!

 

 

About the WORDS TO LIVE BY Cross Stitch Pattern

  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Finished Design Size: This pattern is larger than most of my designs.  It measures 13.8″ x 11.2″ (35.0 x 28.5 cm) unframed when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth
  • Stitches Used: full cross-stitches

 

This easy pattern is a great project for beginner stitchers as it uses full cross-stitches only.

Materials and Tools

This pattern requires the following materials. 

Fabric: This pattern was designed using 14-count Aida as the fabric.  Choose your favourite colour, but remember that the black stitches won’t show well on darker fabric!

Threads: DMC is my absolutely go-to for floss, but of course, you can choose the brand you love most.  There are a number of online tools that will convert the numbers to the brand of your choice.  I have designed this pattern using only black and white thread to keep it simple, but you can swap out these colours for anything you like!

    • DMC BLANC – White
    • DMC 310 – Black

 

 

Needles

Embroidery Scissors

Embroidery Hoop
