Candy Cane Cross Stitch by SweetiePie

We love it when fellow cross stitchers come up with new and creative ways with their cross stitch projects. We are always on the look out for these wonderful people and their special needlework projects.

Here’s a timely tutorial from SweetiePie on how to make your very own cross stitched candy cane. She suggests that not only can you use it to add to your Christmas ornaments, but you can also utilize it into a bookmark. What a great idea! This should be a pretty exciting project for any age, whether you are just starting on cross stitching or are a seasoned cross stitch enthusiast.
