Years ago I stitched seat covers for my antique dining room set. It took a long time, but when it was finished, it was stunning. Each piece was totally stitched (no aida showing around the design) then stapled and covered with a thin clear plastic. I eventually sold the set. Now I'm in the country and would like to do the same thing, but wildlife scenes. I've selected a few from this sight, but I don't know how to expand the pattern to fit the 24 x 24 size i need and I don't want to just put a border around it unless I have to. I don't want to do anything bigger than 14 count. Is this even possible? thanks for any help. -- jamie from superior, montana
- Hi Jamie, if the pattern is a bit smaller than you need that's a tough one. There's really no way to make it bigger. If it's not too far, I think I would probably stitch some of the adjacent colors farther out in a kind of random fashion and then you might end up with a kind of blurred-edge surrounding the picture. Otherwise, just stitch a solid border color (like a frame). -- Marv Schier from Crosstitch.com -- Feb 14
- ...by the way, I think just one of these is a major project (not for the faint of heart). So you're very talented to be able to do a whole dining room set. -- Marv Schier from Crosstitch.com -- Feb 14
- Thanks, living in montana you get a lot of time waiting for spring to get in the garden. If I remember from last time, it took almost a year per chair..idle hands you know. thanks for the reply -- jamie from superior, montana -- Feb 15
- Nothing says, you have to stitch over just one block. Be bold, and stitch over more. Increase the aida count....get creative! -- Lisa from Douglasville, GA -- Feb 16
