as i have a new pompom maker
Been giving it some thought over the last few days and came up with the idea of lots of punched circles in lots of colours and placing them in a design....
A more formal but simple design
....taken from the cross stitch design below
Not sure its simpler than graph paper and coloured pencils but...
You could make a throw/rug from any cross stitch or grid design...replace each stitch/square with a punched circle or square on graph paper
A simple stripe
Below is a spot variation on the first cross stitch pattern..
another very simple design...
Collage of the cross stitch pattern as a repeat to make a large throw
I can see lots of simple cross stitch design that could be made
Hows this for a great use of cross stitch...
