Mini cat pillow cross stitch tutorial

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. 


Tah dah.........!!!

There you have it, a cute mini cat pillow.

Why not stitch all of the mini black cat cross stitch patterns from my mini cat series from 2015?

 I have designed one for each month, I have completed all twelve designs for the year. 

The patterns are available on my blog 

Happy stitching!
