Cross-stitch.

it's been a while since I did a DIY post, but last week I was fed up of having a bag of buttons just lying around so thought of something to do with them.


I've had an old vest waiting just screaming 'do something with me' for a while, so here it is;


I started buy sellotaping a pattern - in my case a cross. This gives a good outline, but can be removed later too!


Then I just started stitching!



And voila!

Isn't it cute. I love DIY cos there really are no rules. I haven't worn this yet, but hopefully all of the buttons will stay in tact, i'm rubbish at sewing. You really wouldn't think I've studied textiles for however long!
