Linen or Aida fabric
DMC or Anchor stranded cotton
Cross stitch needle
Sharp embroidery scissors
Lightweight iron on interfacing (Pellon)
Polyester fibre fill
Before starting the back stitches you must ensure you have counted from the edge of the cross stitch all the way around, i.e. if you should ten threads from the edge of the parcel before stitching you should also count ten threads from the edge of the holly, does that make sense? If not email me and I will help.
There is a hand made cord tutorial here just scroll down the page.
There you have it, a cute mini cat pillow.
Why not stitch all of the mini cat from my new mini cat series for 2015?
I am designing one for each month, I have completed the January and February design, the basic design grids are available on my blog or if you wish to support this blog you can purchase a more detailed pdf at my Craftsy store.
