Olympic stitching


With preparations for the Olympics getting into full swing in London, we thought it would be fun to show you a couple of funky cross stitch patterns from this month’s Cross Stitcher. After all, cross stitch is perfect for a bit of arm chair spectator sport. Well, at least your fingers will be getting a work out…

The London skyline cushion is shades of red, white and blue makes a great souvenir for 2012. It’s designed by Anette Eriksson, and is stitched onto a pretty blue fabric. The retro camera design is by Kerry Morgan, and it’s made into a practical little case to fit a compact camera. Perfect for all those holiday snaps you’ll be taking, and if you’re one of the lucky few with tickets to the Olympics, all those action shots.

The cross stitch designs are in issue 254 Cross Stitcher, on sale 13th June.
