- Embroidery Hoop
- Craft Wire 16 Gauge
- Wire pliers
- Cross Printable
Start by printing out the printable. Using the craft wire and pliers to bend the wire to form the cross. Using a piece of tape, tape the two ends of the wire together.Start by using a piece of masking tape and tape the end of the yarn to the hoop and begin to loop the string around the hoop and through the cross.I found that it helped to stabilize the cross by taping up the corners on the top and bottom. Then you just make your way around the cross filling int he rest of the cross.The one thing you have to look out for is pulling the string too tight. I pulled the string a little too tight and it made the cross expand a little, but I’m not going to lie, I kind of dig handmade crafts that aren’t perfect.
