16 Modern Cross Stitch Projects

My mom is the queen of cross stitch. She had stitched 100+ pictures, pillows, and stockings over the past 30 years. I love them, and have many of her pieces hang on my walls. I’ve tried to continue the cross stitching tradition, but I’m bad. I can’t follow the patterns and mine always turn out wonky. Here are 16 faux cross stitch or cross stitch inspired crafts that I’ve got my eye on.

I want to cross stitch all of my tees immediately and my screen door (that I don’t have) and I NEED a cross stitched necklace. I also love that little cross stitched dino on the onesie. Are you a stitcher? Which one is your favorite? I’d love to hear…





  1. My mom was a master at cross stitch, it was the one needlepoint craft she was good at….. I can’t even tell you how many cross-stitch pillow she had in her house!

  2. I love the cross stitch screen door. How awesome is that!

  3. I have been cross stitching for close to 20 years and find it relaxing. My favorite of all these projects would have to be the chair. What a unique way to update a plain chair.
