From Cross Stitch To Catwalk!

We show you how to take your stitching off aida and onto your favourite clothes...

There’s no better way of showing the world that you love stitching than by displaying it on your clothes! Personalising items with cross stitch is a fun way to create unique pieces that are sure to get you – and your stitching – noticed. We chatted to Crazy readers to find out what they’ve made and hear their tips for creating a new stitchy wardrobe…

A world of opportunities

“I love stitching on clothing!” enthuses Chanda VanDuser from Virginia, USA. “I’ve made so many t-shirts I need to figure out how to get my waste canvas wholesale!” The possibilities are endless, from adding a simple motif to a jumper to a more complex design, such as the stunning dream catcher denim jacket created by Sarah Rose, a stitcher from Ohio, USA.

Personalised clothing can be a great way to mark a special event. For Emma McEntee, it was a trip to Disney World that inspired her. “I wanted to customise a top to wear on my holiday, and found a chart on the Disney Family website,” she explains. Emma’s so pleased with the results of her Finding Dory that she’s planning on making more customised Disney tops for her trip.
