This is the smallest pig that I created... and it took the longest to create by FAR! Here is the process of making this Cross Stitched Pig.
I started by drawing out my design. I placed it on graph paper to start with.
I used floss for cross stitching. Embroidery floss is made up of 6 strands that have been twisted together. I split my floss into two, so there are only 3 strands of floss to thread into the needle. I also assigned the floss to a color.
I used the markers to design where the color would go in my drawing.
Then I started stitching... and stitching, and stitching! To get a better idea of how to cross stitch, please watch the video below.
I worked on this everywhere this summer. In the car, on the beach, while visiting friends and family. I even had my niece helping me... did you see that in the video? This pig took a long time, and stressed out my eyes a lot, but it was worth it.
