Cross-stitch is one of the easiest stitches to master, and we've created fun clip-art motifs that you can take anywhere. Gather your supplies -- you don't need many -- slip them into a pouch for convenient toting, and take your crafts show on the road.
Capture your family in cross-stitches with a family portrait or a more elaborate family tree. Doodle and play around with hairstyles and accessories before putting needle to cloth. Even just a few stitches for a baby in a carrier adds a lot of personality. Frame and hang the cloth (and leave a little extra space in case your family grows).

It's a cinch to cross-stitch: Use the weave of fabric called "aida cloth" to make X-shaped stitches in neat rows. Frame your menagerie in four- and five-inch wooden embroidery hoops. For added polish, give the hoops a coat of primer followed by high-gloss enamel spray paint. If you're stitching single-color designs, you'll find it easier to make the outline first.Learn How to Cross-Stitch
