Needlepoint Round-Up

We love an opportunity to add thread to any project, and we were super inspired since reading this fantastic pattern from Danielle Thompson for a cross-stitched pendant a while back.  We've scoured the Internet to bring you some awesome projects created using the same technique, and a shop on Etsy where you can purchase those super cute circle perfect for creating your own needlepoint or cross stitch projects!

Danielle's butterfly pendant pattern can be found here, complete with her beautifully vintage-inspired photo sets.

You can purchase round cut pendants at Modern Needle Works on Etsy. They come in various sizes, wood & plastic for all of your needlepoint or cross stitch pendant needs.

Wee Little Stitches offers this fantastic Halloween monster cross stitch pattern set for some Halloween crafting (you still have time, especially if you're caught in the terrible hurricane storms!). Find it at Kitschy Digitals, a fantastic source for, well, kitschy digitals!

We love this Silhouettes Needlepoint Kit from Felicity Hall!

One more from Danielle Thompson (we can't help but love everything she does!) is this awesome peg board cross stitch tutorial. This is great even if you're using the peg board to spruce it up, as they can often look a little too industrial for an inspiring craft space.

This Anna Maria Horner Needlepoint Kit comes with the pre-printed tapestry pattern, wool yarn, needle, and directions to create this great tapestry!

And finally, more decorative pre-cut wooden pendants from Greek Art on Etsy, with a decorative border!

  1. Wee Little Stitches are OK but there are other shops that sell great cross stitch patterns, like PixelPower, for example. I think that PixelPower even better than WLS:

    - they have way more patterns (in fact, they have A LOT of patterns) and add a new pattern almost every day;
    - their patterns cost less money and they have amazing sales, like 3 patterns for 10$ or 5 patterns for 15$;
    - they have a Facebook group where they post a free pattern every week and giveaway some of their commercial patterns for free;
    - they make custom patterns in a day or two and if you can't find your favourite movie, tv show or music band in their shop you need just ask them to make it for you, everything will be ready in a couple of days, try to do the same with WLS, you'll be waiting for ages;
    - they are just super:-)

    Give them some love and visit their shop: Facebook:
