Nine Creative Ways to Finish Your Cross Stitch in 2019
2019 is quickly approaching, and as a crafter, you may be thinking about what crafts you want to complete next year.
Listed below are nine creative ways to finish your cross stitch pieces. Use these finishes as inspiration for your future cross stitch finishes.
1) Painted Frame with Fabric Flowers
Give your cross stitch an extra pop of originality by painting an old frame and attaching gorgeous fabric flowers.
2) Cross Stitch Coasters
Use fabric glue to adhere completed cross stitch to coasters to create truly unique pieces for your home.
3) Simple Flat Finish
Some patterns don't need a flashy finish. For a piece that looks better without a frame, consider a flat finish. Wrap your cross stitch piece around foam board, mat board, or sticky board, and then prop up to admire.
4) Canvas Cross Stitch
Add some variety to your craft by stitching on a fabric covered canvas with yarn. A small design is needed, but these can be great, quick projects for seasonal decorations.
5) Cross Stitch Game
Have some fun with your completed pieces by framing a stitched activity or game behind glass or plexiglass. Don't forget to display the piece with a dry erase marker for endless hours of fun for family and friends.
6) Left Chest Cross Stitch
Pick some small designs that would look great as an accent on a shirt, and stitch them using waste canvas. The right design can really add something great to a simple shirt.
7) Pillow Finish
Create pieces that standout on shelves, dressers, or desks. Simply sew fabric to the back of the cross stitch piece and fill with polyester fiberfill, sawdust, or crushed walnut shells.
8) Cross Stitch Flats
Create one-of-a-kind footwear. Adhere cross stitch to a pair of flats for an affordable and incredibly unique pair of shoes.
9) Ornament Flat Finish
Add trim and a ribbon hanger to a flat finish to create a super cute cross stitch ornament.
