Make a framed floral cross-stitch map on new stitchable mesh from DMC!Cross-stitch was the first craft I can remember my mom teaching me when I was young. It was fun and a great way to pass the time, but I don’t think I ever did it again after my teenage years until just a couple of years ago when I started applying it to unconventional items like office supplies or using a faux cross-stitch technique on a dress or the wall.
