cross stitch pic

sorie6July 12, 2009

I saw a pic a lady did of her cat done in c.s. with beads. I'd like to make one of my dog. How do I go about getting the pic on canvas and do you think this is to advanced for a beginner? Thanks.

You could use PC stitch and chart it from your photo but instead of floss use beads. I have Anne Benson's book bead point and it shows how to cross stitch with beads and do pictures and what types of beads are good for this, wonderfull book. Mary

Here is a link that might be useful: Beadpoint

Thank you. I don't know how to do that but will try to find out.
