I found some cross stitch alphabets through pins on Pinterest. After working floral embroidery on the bags, which can be used by anyone, I wanted to personalize these three bags. My grand nephew [ important family member], DH and myself were treated this way.
The alphabets were worked on aida fabric,
Three small embroidery patterns to go with these letters.
Stem stitches, woven crosses for flowers and straight stitches and pearl beads-1
Stem stitch, detached chain and beads-2
Stem stitch, woven cross, leaf stitch and beads-3
This is mine-
For my DH, his name is Gangadharan-
For my g nephew, his name is Advaith-
When I chose and worked the crosses on Aida cloth, it matched the linen fabric, it was another story when they were sewn on to it. I was too busy to think of putting something around it.
