Hi Franny, here is a simplelittle project you might like for VBS it’s simple and doesn’t take much time.
found the directions super confusing – having a pattern to follow might help
Thanks for visiting my web site. There is a pattern pictured for all pieces including directions
Just read carefully and follow the directions as they are printed.
I had to copy the image in microsoft word and enlarge it to see how this is cut out. I do not understand the first part of the instructions: EACH SQUARE EQUALS ONE STITCH THERE SHOULD BE TWO CROSS STITCHES ACROSS WIDTH AND TWO CROSS STITCHES ALL THE WAY DOWN THE LENGTH.
I’m so glad you have this pattern. My sisters and I collect Crosses and I wanted to make some for their birthdays. Thanks again.
Thanks for visiting my website. I’m So glad you found something on here you liked. If I can be of any help just let me know.
