I am loving all of the fun cross-stitch projects I’ve been seeing everywhere. And I love that cross-stitch is making a comeback! It is actually the first craft my mother taught me. I haven’t done it in years though. Luckily, it’s like riding a bicycle. And if you’ve never done it, it is SUPER simple to learn.
How cute is this little office organizer all dressed up with a little bit of cross-stitch?
I’ve been keeping an eye out for anything nontraditional that I thought I could possible cross-stitch on. I lucked out finding this little beauty in the Target Dollar Spot! It was the perfect little project to practice on.
Other than an item to cross-stitch on, you will need a needle and thread.
The holes in the basket are offset and don’t line up perfectly like traditional cross-stitch fabric so I had to fudge the pattern a bit, but it all worked out in the end. The hardest part was actually tying off the thread on the back because the space was so small to maneuver the needle.
