First finished project of 2018!

Hello there! As most of you are aware I was working on a Disney Castle stitch (pattern from Etsy here) and I thought I would update my blog with the finished product and the pictures I took after each session.

I wanted to cross stitch myself something as I’ve been stitching for years and have yet to finish a project for me. As a Disney addict I thought this pattern was the only acceptable option to choose, it was very affordable and luckily I had a lot of the colours.

As you can see I finished this piece in 9 sessions and in total it took me around 23 hours – this was because there were quite a lot of sections with tiny segments of colour and it required quite a lot of changes. On a difficulty rating I would say this project is around a 6/10, but again this is only because of the amount of changes it required in colour, apart from that I absolutely had a blast stitching it (I get fed up of projects very quickly usually so this was a breath of fresh air).

I’d love to know what projects you’re currently working on, comment below and let me know 🙂

Pattern – Girl Look How F**king Orange You Look

We all loved season 5 of Rupaul’s Drag Race didn’t we? It brought to light some of the best one liners, and this one in particular is in my top 10 quotes of all time.

As I have quite a backlog of patterns I thought I’d share another free downloadable one for you today, and you might have guessed that it came from season 5 pageant bae Alyssa Edwards.

You know that moment between her and Coco? One of the best moments in RuPaul Herstory. Well I thought I’d make a quote pattern from it and add a cute little flower to the bottom of the screen, do you have a friend who loves bronzer or wears a little bit too much fake tan, well this is the pattern for you!

I’d love to see people’s take on this pattern – feel free to tag me on Instagram/Twitter or use the hashtag #ObvItsAmyStitches!

Pattern – If you can’t love yourself

Today I thought I’d share one of my own patterns with you, as most of you know a lot of my patterns are very heavily inspired by the wonderful drag queens of the world.

One of the first basic patterns I created was a quote from the famous mumma Ru!

I created this pattern using MacStitch which is a programme I bought back in 2016, it’s a really easy to use piece of software for stitchers who want to get creative and make their own patterns.
