I love Halloween and thought a black cat cross stitch design would be a perfect gift to stitch for a friend. You can see the finishing instructions for this pillow on my finishing blog. Included in the pattern is a small Christmas Cat design to stitch a scissor fob but the instructions to finish the fob are not included, you can also find those on my cross stitch finishing blog.
The pattern includes cross stitch instructions for the beginner, a colour and black and white grid, materials list and a small grid for the Christmas mini black cat.
The Black Cat measurements depending on fabric count used
14 count fabric = 9.6cm wide x 11.6cm high (3.79 x 4.6 inches)
16 count fabric = 8.4cm wide x 10.1cm high (3.4 x 4.0 inches )
18 count fabric = 7.5 wide x 9.0 high (2.9 x 3.6 inches)
22 count fabric = 6.11cm wide x 7.3cm high (2.4 x 3 inches)
I started sewing when I was 7 years old, I love any kind of crafts but my favourite crafts are dressmaking, cross stitch, embroidery and quilting.
I have a cross stitch blog www.happinessiscrossstitching.blogspot.com and a cross stitch finishing blog www.lynnscrossstitchtutorials.blogspot.com where you can find lots of tips and finishing ideas for your cross stitch.
