I was looking for a way to showcase the floss colours I own and play around organizing them in different ways without having to completely pull apart the three boxes of numerically ordered bobbins that I store my floss in every time the whim catches me.<br /><br />I own almost every shade of DMC's six-stranded cotton embroidery floss - that's more than 400 bobbins of floss and while the storage boxes I use are great for keeping my colours in numerical order, it doesn't make it easy (or all that fun or photogenic!) to play around with new combinations.&nbsp; I own DMC's <a href="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001C1NMO2/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=B001C1NMO2&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=weelittlestit-20&amp;linkId=f44a6d1a064655c3780428d67f434cbf" target="_blank">floss colour card</a> and while it's a handy, irreplaceable resource, it too doesn't allow me to play around with putting different colours together - and (call me slightly crazy) but I do think that the colour of the floss just looks ever so different when it's stitched up than it does when it's wrapped around a bobbin or just hanging out in a skein - maybe it's the way the light hits the different direction of the stitch 'legs'?<br /><br />I knew I wanted a stitched record of all the colours of floss I own, and I played around with the concept of one really big tapestry of each colour lined up in one big chart, just like the floss colour card - but quickly realized that wouldn't allow me to move things around and see how colours looked beside each other.&nbsp; What I really needed were small, stitched cards of each floss colour - like an embroiders version of Pantone colour chips - and so the Floss Swatch Project was born.<br /><br />I love <a href="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0033PBANA/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=B0033PBANA&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=weelittlestit-20&amp;linkId=6f3d6d60dc2014456bdda7c4401e2c86" target="_blank">14 count white plastic canvas</a> for my swatches.&nbsp; It's cheap and so easy to work with - and best of all it doesn't fray or get bent or dirty.&nbsp; You can either stitch your swatches on one big piece of plastic canvas and then cut them apart, or cut small blanks and stitch as you go.&nbsp; <a href="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000YQH5DU/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=B000YQH5DU&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=weelittlestit-20&amp;linkId=55f342ab708483d49b3ee330e419b826" target="_blank">Aida cloth</a> would work too, especially if you used some <a href="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000YQKIDY/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=B000YQKIDY&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=weelittlestit-20&amp;linkId=88b8851b0a73b06bb65fb37bb87f5edd" target="_blank">Fray Check</a> to keep the edges neat and tidy, but I must admit that the plastic canvas is my favourite for this project - it's just so easy!<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

Guess what?!&nbsp; We put together a resource so you can do that easily - and best of all?&nbsp; It's FREE!&nbsp; You can download the <a href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/5sn6bpezv414968/Floss%20Swatch%20Project_weelittlestitches.pdf?dl=0" target="_blank">FREE PDF HERE</a>&nbsp; - it includes a chart and instructions to stitch your own swatches <i>and</i> a handy printable chart of all the current DMC 6-strand Cotton Embroidery Floss colours so you can check off your progress - and yes, it includes the new colours released last year.<br /><br />Don't use DMC floss?&nbsp; No problem!&nbsp; You can still use the PDF tutorial to stitch swatches with whatever brand of floss you prefer - there are plenty of checklists available online for each brand of floss, usually there's a free one on the manufacturers website. <br /><br />Please, please don't forget to tag us on social media (we're @weelittlestitches on Instagram, @weelittlestitch on Twitter, and Wee Little Stitches Cross Stitch on Facebook) and use the hashtag #flossswatchproject and #fsp so that we can see your progress.&nbsp;

And not only do I want that for my daughter and for your children, but I want it now, for everyone, everywhere.&nbsp; It's 2016 and we are better than this.<br /><br />As always, when the events in the world get to be too much for me - when they're too big, too scary, too horrible, I turn to my craft.&nbsp; It calms and centers me and gives me an outlet for my fears and my heartache.&nbsp; So I did what I am best at and designed myself a pattern to give voice to my sadness and I happily offer it to you too, free of charge (download it <a href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/hkwcdlqtv8lhmso/Love%20Is%20Love.pdf?dl=0" target="_blank">here</a>).&nbsp; Stitch it for your friends, for your children, for yourself.&nbsp; Stitch it because it's the truth and deserves, no - demands - to be heard.<br /><br />I honestly, passionately believe that we as humans are here on Earth to create, not destroy. Our hands are meant to hold paintbrush and pen, knitting needle and sewing needle, not guns.<br /><br />Don't back down my lovelies.&nbsp; Stand and be proud.&nbsp; Love is love is love is love.<br /><br />Want to watch the moment that inspired my pattern?&nbsp; Check out Lin-Manuel Miranda's beautiful Tony Award acceptance speech <span id="goog_515365048"></span><a href="https://www.blogger.com/">here<span id="goog_515365049"></span></a>.weelittlestitcheshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01166575542383309188noreply@blogger.com11tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4961175877619663244.post-54561146725835681432016-02-29T15:31:00.000-05:002016-02-29T15:31:53.597-05:00Meet Gable + Finch!When the year gives you a whole extra day what do you do with it?

I've been making jewelry for myself for twenty years and I'm so excited to finally share it with you! I want to bring sweet, timeless handcrafted loveliness to everyone.<br /><br />The first collection features silver and glass pendants which encase some of my precious vintage quilting fabrics. I've been hoarding these lovely scraps for ages and love this way of displaying them so prettily.&nbsp; They're the perfect dainty little accent for all your girliest outfits!<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

Each one is cut from a different piece of the cloth, so each one is just a little bit different.&nbsp; I think they make really great gifts for the special gals in your life.<br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto;

Don't let the super size fool you, stitching these mega pieces is really no more difficult than stitching them regular sized.&nbsp; I've had so many requests for a tutorial that I just had to share.&nbsp; So here's how to make one yourself.<br /><br /><br /><b>What You'll Need:</b><br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-f0AuPWuRIy8/VDfavy_l1cI/AAAAAAAAAkQ/NAiUj4A6feA/s1600/2014-10-05%2B10.01.31.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em;

For our samples we stitched <a href="https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/79525841/pixel-people-spider-man-villains-pdf?ref=shop_home_active_15" target="_blank">Spider-Man</a>, <a href="https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/65977730/pixel-people-justice-league-of-america?ref=shop_home_active_2" target="_blank">Wonder Woman</a>, and <a href="https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/187373540/pixel-people-adventure-time-pdf-cross?ref=shop_home_active_4" target="_blank">Lumpy Space Princess</a>.<br /><br />A <a href="http://www.rona.ca/en/hardboard-panel" target="_blank">pegboard panel</a> (often called 'perforated hardboard')&nbsp; It can be found at most home improvement stores.&nbsp; We get ours in 4x2 foot sheets for $9 each at Rona - a board that size is easily enough for a single, standard-sized Pixel Person.&nbsp; You can often get them pre-painted in white, or - more commonly - in the natural untreated colour.&nbsp; <br /><br />White paint and a small foam roller - we used a high adhesive primer from <a href="http://www.rona.ca/en/hardboard-panel" target="_blank">Zinsser</a> simply because that's what we had lying around the house leftover from recent renovations and it worked a treat, especially on the smooth surface of the pegboard.&nbsp; The paint is completely optional - if you're able to get pre-primed pegboard, or you don't mind the wood coloured background as is, you won't need the paint at all.<br /><br />A jigsaw with a blade suitable for cutting masonite (that's what pegboard is made of).&nbsp; Most jigsaws come with an all-purpose blade which will cut just about anything - that's what we used and it worked just fine.&nbsp; <br /><br />Fine grade sandpaper or a fine grade sanding block.<br /><br />Safety glasses and a dust mask.<br /><br />Worsted weight or bulky weight yarn in the appropriate colours.&nbsp; We used worsted weight yarn simply because, as a knitter, I already have tons of it lying around the house and it comes in such a wide range of colours.&nbsp; For this project I used mostly <a href="http://www.yarnspirations.com/simply-soft.html" target="_blank">Caron Simply Soft</a> - it's an easy to find brand and it's inexpensive.&nbsp; One skein of yarn in each colour will be more than enough to complete several giant Pixel People.&nbsp; There's no need to use expensive yarn for this project - just use whatever is cheap and plentiful!<br /><br />Yarn needle - preferably one with a large eye.<br /><br />Scissors.<br /><br />A pencil.<br /><br /><br /><br /><b>Ready to Get Started?</b><br /><br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

If you've never used power tools before this might seem super intimidating, but I happen to think this is a great chance for you to start!&nbsp; I come from a long line of woodworkers, so power tools are nothing new to me and I feel comfortable with them.&nbsp; A jigsaw is a small and portable tool so it's a little less scary than the big table saws and it's a tool which I happen to think is totally within the realm of a first-timer.&nbsp; If you can use an electric mixer, waffle iron, or blender then you can use a jigsaw.<br /><br />Please don't be scared of power tools.&nbsp; Please don't think that you aren't capable of using one.&nbsp; There's a certain kind of satisfaction that comes from mastering the use of such a tool regardless of your experience or gender. <br /><br /><i>YOU CAN TOTALLY DO THIS</i>.&nbsp;<br /><br /><br />I cut out all my pegboard, <i>by myself</i>, without any supervision or interference, while wearing a dress and lipstick (and safety glasses and a dust mask - it was a good look).&nbsp; You got this, girl.&nbsp; I have complete faith in you.&nbsp;&nbsp; If, however, you're still not comfortable using a jigsaw by yourself, by all means find someone with some experience using it to help you.&nbsp; Once you see how fun and easy it is, you'll probably want to give it a try too.<br /><br />You <i>can </i>use hand tools for this project, but you may have problems getting a hand saw in to the little nooks and crannies of the Pixel Person shape.&nbsp; The nice thing about the jigsaw is that the little, thin blade fits into the holes in the pegboard, making it easy to maneuver it to cut the wonky outlines of your Pixel Person.<br /><br />Alternately, you can just use the sheet of pegboard as is, centering your stitching on the rectangular pegboard the same way you would a piece of fabric. <br /><br /><br /><b>Step One: The Prep Work</b><br /><br />Before you do anything else, you'll want to print up the pattern of the Pixel Person you'll be stitching.&nbsp; The holes in pegboard are most commonly 1 per inch, meaning that our stitches will be 1 inch in size.&nbsp; It's pretty amazing to see cross-stitches so big!&nbsp; The math for figuring out just how large a stitched Pixel Person will be at this scale is simple - if they're 14 stitches wide then they'll be 14 inches wide.<br /><br />To get the look we're going for <span style="color: #3d85c6;">you're going to need to cut the pegboard so that it has a border of 1 square all the way around the figure</span>.&nbsp; You need that border so that your stitches are secure.&nbsp; I found it easiest to first draw the cutting line out on the chart so that I could see how everything was going to look and then draw out the shape I wanted to cut directly on to the pegboard to give me cutting guides.<br /><br /><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="float: left;

Don't forget you NEED that border of one square all the way around the design.&nbsp; Double-checking your cutting lines before you start cutting is recommended - once the pegboard is cut, it can't be changed so any mistakes need to be caught ahead of time.&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><b>Step Two: The Cutting</b><br /><br /><br />It's time to start cutting!&nbsp; You may want to do this step outside or in the garage as the jigsaw can be loud and the sawdust it kicks up does make a mess.&nbsp; You'll want to balance your pegboard on some workhorses or, if you're like me, on the edge of your patio table.<br /><br /><span style="color: #cc0000;">You should <b><i><span style="background-color: yellow;"><span style="color: black;">ALWAYS</span></span></i></b> wear safety glasses when using power tools and especially when cutting wood. </span><span style="color: #cc0000;"><span style="color: #cc0000;">Yes, I know those safety glasses and that dust mask aren't sexy, but safety <i>is</i> -- so embrace it!</span> Masonite pegboard is comprised of pressed wood fibres and when you cut it fine sawdust tends to get everywhere.&nbsp; It's very nasty and abrasive if it gets in your eyes and it can do some serious damage.&nbsp; I do also recommend wearing a dust mask when you cut too - just to keep your beautiful lungs beautiful and free of sawdust.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-sDmLggdI5n4/VDfgF2SxoUI/AAAAAAAAAmA/i30uB22jeH0/s1600/2014-10-05%2B10.09.33.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em;

With the jigsaw off, nestle the blade in to one of the holes of the pegboard.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></span><br /><br /><span style="color: #cc0000;"><span style="color: black;">To cut your outline all you need to do is turn the jigaw on and cut from one hole to the next, trying to keep the line as straight as possible - go slowly and take your time.&nbsp; My jigsaw has two cutting speeds - fast and faster.&nbsp; I prefer the lower speed because it gives me more control.&nbsp; Depending on the size of Pixel Person I'm cutting out, this step takes me about twenty minutes start to finish.</span></span><br /><br /><span style="color: #cc0000;"><span style="color: black;">I like to stabilize the pegboard with my left hand while the jigsaw is held in my right.&nbsp; Just remember to keep your left hand fingers far away from where you are cutting!&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span><br /><br /><br />&nbsp; <br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-no_XH5tV4lI/VDfaxGfCspI/AAAAAAAAAkk/XAJL0oC5dbA/s1600/2014-10-05%2B10.14.38.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right;

Then just turn the corner, turn the jigsaw back on, and cut to the next turn - repeat that until you get all the way around the lines that you drew.<br /><br />I like to think about cutting the pegboard as 'connecting the dots' with the jigsaw blade.&nbsp; <br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Make sure you turn off and unplug the jigsaw when you are done with it (or remove the battery pack if it's cordless).&nbsp;<span style="background-color: white;"> <span style="color: #cc0000;"><i>Never ever</i></span> leav</span>e a power tool plugged in when it's not in use and never leave it unattended around children - even when it's unplugged the edges of the blade are sharp and can cause cuts, so please use caution.&nbsp; Power tools should always be stored away from where curious little hands can reach.<br /><br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto;

Depending on your jigsaw blade you may find that the edges of your piece are a little ragged.&nbsp; A quick sand with a fine grit sanding block (or sandpaper) will take care of that little problem.&nbsp; The masonite sands really easily.<br /><br />Cutting your pegboard kicks up a lot of dust so you'll want to wipe it down with a damp cloth to get off all that dirt and dust.<br /><br /><br /><b> </b><br /><br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="float: right;

Scratches!</td></tr></tbody></table><br />I was working with pre-primed pegboard to make Lumpy Space Princess, so it was handily already white - but the pegboard I had for Spider-man and Wonder Woman wasn't, so I primed it with my Zinsser primer <i>after</i> I cut out the shape I wanted.&nbsp; It took three coats to get complete coverage.<br /><br />If you did use pre-primed pegboard you may find that your jigsaw has scratched a little of primed surface while you cut.&nbsp; Mine totally did.&nbsp; So I used a small foam brush and dabbed on a little white paint to cover those scratches.<br /><br />You can also - if you like - paint the edges of the pegboard white if the raw wood colour bothers you.&nbsp; I did that for Spider-man but don't really think it's necessary.&nbsp; Most people are so focussed on how cool the giant cross-stitch is that they don't even notice the edges.<br /><br /><br /><br />Don't forget to let all your paint dry before you start stitching! <br /><br /><br /><b>Step Four: The Stitching</b><br /><br /><br />Yay!&nbsp; Congrats for getting this far.&nbsp; All the scary and loud work is over.&nbsp; Now comes the familiar part.&nbsp; Stitching a giant Pixel Person really isn't any different from stitching a regular sized one.&nbsp; Whether the cross-stitches are 14 per inch or just 1 per inch, it's all the same process!<br /><br />I stitch my giant Pixel People at the kitchen table.&nbsp; For me it was easiest with the pegboard standing vertically.&nbsp; I put a towel down to protect both the surface of my table and the edges of the pegboard.&nbsp; It also make it nicer for clean up, since you may notice that a bit of sawdust has snuck in to the holes of the pegboard and having a towel down catches all that mess.<br /><br /><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-yoWj6eoCakA/VDfazMhky3I/AAAAAAAAAlM/8-NeUWJO6M8/s1600/2014-10-05%2B11.23.39.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-yoWj6eoCakA/VDfazMhky3I/AAAAAAAAAlM/8-NeUWJO6M8/s1600/2014-10-05%2B11.23.39.jpg" height="400" width="300" /></a>From here on out things are pretty standard.&nbsp; For my projects I used two really long strands of Worsted weight yarn held together and then doubled over to make four strands -- so you'll want to use a yarn needle with a nice big eye to help you thread it.<br /><br />If you're not a knitter/crocheter you may not own a yarn needle - you can find them in the same aisle of the craft store as the knitting needles.&nbsp; I like the blue plastic <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GBROXO/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=1944687762&amp;pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&amp;pf_rd_t=201&amp;pf_rd_i=B000Y3IVV8&amp;pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&amp;pf_rd_r=15ZSXF2FH8XC1J4N9JAH" target="_blank">Susan Bates</a> ones - they were just the right size.<br /><br />When juggling a project this large in size you may find it easiest to use the <a href="http://www.funkandweber.com/starting-threads-with-a-loop/" target="_blank">'loop method</a>' of anchoring your first stitches (rather than the 'stitch over' or 'waste knot' methods).&nbsp; Doubling over two long strands of yarn gives us a chance to do this.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />It may take a few tries to find a length of yarn which works for you and which you find comfortable.&nbsp; Just remember to take your time and try to get all your yarn strands to lie as flat as possible against the pegboard.&nbsp; This is a process known as '<a href="http://www.stitchingthenightaway.com/5011/railroading-your-cross-stitches-2/" target="_blank">railroading</a>'(because the flat parallel strands of floss look like railroad tracks).&nbsp; People ask me all the time why my stitches look so full and this is my secret: I railroad them. It takes some practice to consciously create your stitches this way, but the more you do it the more proficient you become at the skill, and honestly it makes such a huge difference.&nbsp; You may find this <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eY00Smy_Zok" target="_blank">YouTube video</a> on railroading helpful (she starts the demo on railroading at 2:04) - the way she inserts her needle in between the floss strands is exactly the same way I do it.&nbsp; It honestly becomes second nature after a while.&nbsp; It's a little trickier with 4 strands of yarn than it is with 2 strands of floss, but with the stitches SO large on this project, it's well worth the effort.<br /><br />From here on out all you have to do is cross-stitch, baby.&nbsp; <br /><br /><table align="center"

dozens of emails requesting new patterns and suggesting ideas - we love hearing from you and learning which designs you want the most.&nbsp; In four years of running our little shop I don't think any franchise has been more requested than Game of Thrones.&nbsp; Seriously, I've gotten hundreds of emails asking for GoT patterns.&nbsp; We're big fans of the show and the books and were more than enthusiastic to bring the beloved series in to the Pixel People family - the big question was HOW?&nbsp; With dozens upon dozens of characters, most of whom don't live for very long, tackling patterns for GoT was an intimidating process!&nbsp; We're very excited to bring you the first pattern in the installment - and what better way to start than with the Starks?<br /><br /><br />More GoT patterns will be rolling out over the next few months - and yes, we'll get to your favourite character soon!&nbsp; In the meantime though, get the House Stark Pixel Person pattern<a

the patio, soak up the sun, and stitch the long, light-filled days away.&nbsp; I honestly can't think of a better way to spend my short, short summer!<br /><br /><br /><br /><div class="separator"

release - it turned out even better than I could have hoped!&nbsp; We're big, big Adventure Time fans at our house - it's just so weird and imaginative and wonderful that we can't help ourselves.&nbsp; It was difficult narrowing down which characters to feature in the pattern and after many debates we decided on the Ice King (and Gunter!), Marceline the Vampire Queen, Finn the Human, Jake the Dog, Beemo, Peppermint Butler, Princess Bubblegum, and our personal favourite Lumpy Space Princess.<br /><br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a

</style><![endif]-->Hello Fellow Canadians!&nbsp; Just a heads up that because we apparently make too much money these days, the good ol' boys at CRA now require us to collect HST/GST from our Canadian customers - sorry!!&nbsp; It's the law though, and we sorta have to go along with it.&nbsp; If you live in Canada you should already be accustomed to paying these taxes on pretty much everything.<br /><br />From here on out we will be charging the following tax rates <i><b>only to our Canadian customers</b></i> on all our patterns and finished stitchings:<br /><br />Alberta: 5% GST<br />British Columbia: 5% GST<br />Manitoba: 5% GST<br />New Brunswick: 13% HST<br />Newfoundland &amp; Labrador: 13% HST<br />Nova Scotia: 15% HSD<br />Nunavut: 5% GST<br />Ontario: 13% HST<br />Prince Edward Island: 14% HST<br />Quebec: 5% GST<br />Saskatchewan: 5% GST<br />Yukon: 5% GST<br /><br />However, since we don't think it's fair that you should have to pay more than everyone else simply because of where you live, <b><i>we are offering our <span style="color: red;">Canadian customers</span> coupon codes in percentages which reflect the amount of tax we are required by law to collect from you.</i></b>&nbsp;<br /><br />You are responsible for entering the code into the 'coupon code' box during checkout (don't know how to do that? see our <a href="http://weelittlestitchescrossstitch.blogspot.ca/2012/10/how-to-redeem-coupon-codes-on-etsy.html" target="_blank">blog post</a> about it) - the codes are not applied automatically.&nbsp; These
