Stained Glass Cross Ornament

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • optional- reverse sc stitch for one of the edging variations

Pattern Description:

These cross ornaments make me smile every time I make one, and I have been making them for about 30 years now! Over the years I have tweaked and perfected my pattern, and have developed several different edgings to make each one unique. I include include instructions for 4 different edgings in the pattern.

These stained glass crosses are spectacular when worked in variegated thread, starched stiffly, and hung in a window to catch the sun. My pattern also includes my favorite starching method and instructions. These can also be made with solid colors, and/or finished with just a light spray of laundry starch to use as a bookmark.
