“Make It Rain” Cross-Stitch Pillow

13 Mar

I’m not sure how I ran across the work of Jessica Decker, but as soon as I beheld her giant cross-stitches, I was smitten.

I’ve wanted to start cross-stitching, but have been a little intimidated when I’ve searched for beginner cross-stitch kits.  I think I might be more a a free-form cross-stitcher, so I decided to just imitate Jessica Decker’s fabulous “Make It Rain” cross-stitch for another pillow.

I used a pencil to map out where the x’s would go on the fabric and used emroidery thread to stitch ’em on.  It’s not quite as exact as Ms. Decker’s, but I do think it’s pretty darn cute.
