A few weeks ago, I settled on designing some skull coasters for this weekend. I drew out my skull stitch pattern on some grid paper - 3 different ones to be exact, and then I worked up a base to cross stitch into. As soon as I was done with my stitching, I turned my head and looked at my finished coaster, and I did not see a skull... I saw an alien! I think with some tweaking, it can definitely be a spooky skull, but I thought the idea of an alien was quite amusing! And so fun! And still a little spooky. Materials: - 15 Yards of Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn - I used Crafter's Secret Cotton Yarn from Hobby Lobby in Black, White and Gray - H8/5mm Crochet Hook - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends and Cross Stitching Material Notes: Yarn Alternatives: Lily Sugar n Cream, Bernat's Handicrafter, Peaches n Cream, Lion Brand's Kitchen Cotton Time Spent: I spent just over half an hour per coaster.
