I think most crafters like to show off the fact that they are crafters, but that can be difficult with some crafts that don’t lend themselves to garment making. Cross-stitch, for example, isn’t usually used on a lot of things you would wear or use outside the home.
But cross-stitched jewelry is a thing, and this tutorial from Little Stab Studios shows you how to make your own cross-stitched earrings.
Use any little pattern you like (the flowers in her example are super cute but why not hearts, skulls, or any other tiny design?) stitched on high-count fabric. Add some basic jewelry making items and skills and you’ll be making stitched jewelry for everyone you know.
Head to Little Stab Studios for all the details.
