I'm starting with an unpainted pegboard for a more natural feel. This project does require knowing how to cross stitch and back stitch. Neither are hard!! Want to learn? Request a guide! ☺️
Draw your design out on graph paper. Center by counting the number of squares of the design and the size of the pegboard.
I used this free back stitch cursive alphabet.
I'm using a small crochet hook as a needle. I tied a knot around the shaft near the hook to begin.
Create a large knot on a long piece of yarn and pull through.
Begin to back stitch just like you would with Aida and a needle.
See?? There's the "s"!!
Continue your stitching.
This is what the back should look like. If/when you run out of yarn simply thread the hook/needle through a section on the back to secure the yarn. Pull off of hook/needle and repeat the beginning.
Keep going till you complete your design!! I created this if I ever need signage at a flea market for my etsy shop "stitchin good". Thanks for viewing!
