There is a shop on Etsy called Wee Little Stitches where they sell the cutest little cross stitch patterns! I loved this kawaii sushi pattern they had, so I bought it. The shipping was fast, and the pattern + explanations were super clear! They also have a super cute blog http://weelittlestitchescrossstitch.blogspot.ca/ you should go check them out!!!
For this project I used a 14 count Aida fabric in Willow Green. I used 3 strands for the cross stitch, and 2 strands for back stitching and french knots. I started on Sunday April 8, and finished on Monday. It was so much FUN!!! Here are some WIPs:
The colors the designer had chosen were Perfect! It even looks amazing just like this, without the kawaii faces! But of course, I adore all things kawaii, so I added the faces, and the lettering, too. Here is the finished Kawaii Sushi:
OMG!!! IT IS JUST SO CUUUTE!!!!!!!!
The finished piece is 4 x 6 inches. I just love Kawaii Shushi!
