Odds & Ends Jigsaw Puzzle
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY TAM'S CREATIONS
Wow, now this is an innovative and fun cross stitch project!
You will be given a number of jigsaw puzzle shapes and motifs and it will be your job to decide exactly how you want to piece and stitch them together.
It's your decision how small or large your stitched piece will be. Each "piece" of the puzzle is 30 stitches wide by 30 stitches high, about 2 inch square.
The designer suggests a minimum size of a completed puzzle of 9 x 9 pieces: 91 x 91 stitches - or 6.5inch (16.5cm) square, but you can create any square or rectangular shape of any size. The very smallest is 2 x 2 or pieces, about 4 inch square (10cm). It will also work in a rectangular postcard layout with 2 x 3 pieces. Tam's Creations provides three square layout examples (see below). Basically there is no limit to your creativity!
Coloring is "freestyle" too: you pick one single colour of floss for the outlines of the gigsaw pieces. Then, each single piece is yours to color in with different motifs to select from. A great project for using your bits and pieces of thread hanging around.
At Creative Poppy we believe this design is one of the most interactive cross stitch patterns we've ever seen. And tons of fun too!
