How to Wash Cross Stitch Projects

I’m a sucker for tiny cross stitch patterns. They are so fun to stitch and quick to make, it’s like the crafting equivalent of candy. You just want to sneak another piece as soon as the first one is done.

Mini patterns can be stitched all together like a sampler, or you can stitch each one individually. In the case of these mini Easter cross stitch patterns, you could add a different design to the corner of each napkin for your Easter table, or stitch them all together to make a piece of decor you can frame. 

Tiny Cross Stitch Co on Etsy has a cute collection of little Easter designs that’s heavy on animals like bunnies, lambs and chicks. The collection is rounded out with eggs and flowers. The full design is 150 stitches square, so it makes a sampler a little bigger than 21 inches square.

Another cute collection is from Teeny Weeny X Stitch on Etsy. This one has lots of eggs, as well as bunnies, a chick, an Easter basket and Easter bunting. In all there are 20 designs and none of them are bigger than 40 by 40 stitches, or 3 inches when stitched on 14 count fabric. They really pop on dark colored fabric but would be cute with more of a pastel background as well (though some patterns might need backstitched outlines if you do it that way).

If you like florals and word art, Red Bear Design on Etsy has a cute pastel collection you’ll enjoy. Each of these patterns can be stitched individually in a three-inch hoop (Easter tree decorations, anyone?). I love the little pink and blue bunnies but a lot of these patterns would be cure alone or in the whole set.

These maybe aren’t quite as small but each of the eggs in this Scandi Easter egg design are about 2.5 inches tall. The individual designs are 35 by 25 stitches, or if you put them all together it’s 78 by 91. The whole pattern uses five colors. Get it from Creative Poppy Patterns.
