Mini Cat Cross-Stitch

I made this cat cross-stitch picture for my sister's birthday. She is definitely the animal lover in the family. I worked the design in black DMC floss on 22-count hardanger fabric. I framed the finished piece, which is just 1¼" wide by 1¾" tall, in a tiny vintage frame. Click here to download and print a copy of the chart.

To make the same design in a larger size, use evenweave fabric with a lower count. For a 1½" by 2" design, use 18-count Aida; for a 2" by 2¾" design use 14-count; and for a 2½" by 3¼" design use 11-count. Frame it as you like or make it into a little pillow.
