Black & White and Stitched All Over
A few weeks ago, I featured this bathroom on my Friday faves. I loved the simplicity of the design, the contrast between black and white, and the Scandinavian flair it possessed. I let you all know that I was going to use it as inspiration for an upcoming project and here it is!
Cross stitched designs are all over this fall, so I decided to create my own take on the trend using the inspiration from that beautiful bathroom wall. Burlap has a very visible weave, which made it really easy to measure and stitch these mini cross-hatches all over a length of the material.
There could be so many iterations of this same project using different patterns or colors – the possibilities are literally endless.
If you think it’s a project you’re interested in giving a shot, keep reading for the full tutorial!
- Yarn Needle
ONE mark the placement of your crosses on the back of your burlap using chalk and a ruler. Each of my rows are 4″ apart, with each mark within a row 8″ apart. Every other row is staggered. TWO using a threaded yarn needle, make a stitch that is six threads wide. THREE coming back from the opposite direction, make another six thread wide stitch. FOUR cut both of the loose ends and tie into a knot.
Continue this same stitch on each of your marked spots. It took about 40 minutes to do the entire runner, but a pillow cover or some coasters would be a cute and quick(er) take on this project!
I like the way it turned out, and since I’m scheming up a mostly black and white theme for my house this fall, this runner will work well through the autumn season.
I hope you’ll give it a try!
Have a SPLENDID Tuesday!
