Embroidery and Cross-Stitching Thread 🪡

See what I did with the title there :eyes:

Anyone else into embroidery? Cause I love it. It gives me something to do when bored or watching TV…

I got into it by doing a primark €1 small kit. It was my first dabble into embroidery.

I quickly got the hang of it for the most part, as it came with a very convenient guide for most of the stitches.

Now I’ve started a massive project. I’m working on a 30 by 30 cm canvas. Here you can see my latest updated version:

Have any of you ever done embroidery? If yes, feel free to share the results here!


I actually have to correct myself here. It was my 2nd time trying embroidery, but the first time was years ago and it was cross-stitch and I absolutely hated that. I love the free form though, in that I can use much more of my creativity and I love the different textures so much more!
So controversial discussion, cross-stitch or free form embroidery? :eyes:

Snorts Nice.


I don’t wanna mess up this face that currently gives cute vibes… Anyone with embroidery experience who can give me some advice on which stitches to use and what direction? Especially for the part outside of the circle?

Lol, in Dutch we basically call cross stitching and the more free form thing I do the same thing. They are that close to each other. But based on this I changed the name of the thread!
