Cross-Stitch Office Storage

cross-stitch-office-storageI 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?

threadsI’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.

cross-stitch-patternThis little grid book is another Target find (do you love that place as much as I do?) and perfect for making my own cross-stitch patterns. I designed this turquoise flower to fit on the pink basket.

cross-stitch-storageThe 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.

cross-stitch-flowerThis project was super quick to whip up and how much cuter is this little basket now? I can’t wait to fill it with paper clips or binder clips for my new desk!

What a cute project! I love cross stitch and every time I see cross stitch projects I think that it's about time I teach my oldest how to cross-stitch. This is so lovely!

Thanks for sharing and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop.

Wishing you a lovely day. xoxo
