A personalized wedding gift: The photo cross-stitch cushion | En personlig bröllopspresent: Kudde med foto i korsstygn


The wedding season is upon us, and here is what might be one of my weirdest crafting projects ever.

When my sister got married, I decided that I would give them something special, something handmade just for them. Enter - the cushion with their picture in cross-stitches! I worked on it an entire summer and it was more time consuming than I thought since the pattern is based on a photo and therefore not really adjusted to be a quick project. But I like how it turned out, and I hope the newly-weds liked it!

I sent a photo to Ditt mönster and got a pattern and embroidery thread in all colors I would need. Easy peasy. I am sure there are other sites that offer the same service, I googled "photo cross stitch" and got many hits.

Doesn't this inspire to more photo cross-stitching projects...?

Happy stitching!

Summary in Swedish: Bröllopssäsongen startar nu, och när min syster gifte sig gjorde jag denna något speciella korsstygnskudde till brudparet. Jag skickade in ett foto till Ditt mönster och fick tillbaka ett korsstygnsmönster samt all tråd jag behövde. Lätt som en plätt!
