New Home Stitched Card

Stitched are pretty simple to make. Marie at Make and Takes has lots of patterns available and I was inspired to make my own.

I created this little house pattern on my own though. Next time I make a card, I think graph paper would make it a bit simpler instead of just eye-balling it. Our friends had moved into a new home and I wanted to welcome them with a card.

To make your own design, you may first want to look at Marie's basic instructions post for stitched cards.  No fancy equipment is needed.  I used a push-pin, cork from a trivet, and embroidery floss with needle.  

I tend to make cards for birthdays these days with my Cricut though, and we still purchase some, too.  Last Christmas I tried to make our Christmas cards, but made less than a third of what I needed.  Lots of people still appreciate a handmade card!

Hello! :D It looks so cute! :D I made a few of those cards...they were a lot of fun! ;) I never thought of making my own though...I guess it could be somewhat easy to do. Great idea! Your little house was very nicely stitched. :)

Blessings to you and your family! :D

I've thought about making some of those. It'd probably be very popular here.
