Textile Techniques Class – cross-stitch challenge

This week my students brought their completed bookmarks and practice pieces with their fabulous cross stitch designs. I then set them a Valentine’s card speed stitch challenge, providing some Aida cross-stitch fabric marked with a heart shape using a transfer pencil. Then I challenged them to stitch their own designs, whether it be a geometric pattern, a modern random and over-sized stitching, text or a picture.
