I like cross-stitch because it looks great on anything and it's very simple to embroider, so I was naturally excited to find this tutorial. Allison who is a crafter shared this simple and a sweet tutorial on creating an embroidered owl artwork. The tutorial comes with a printable template which can also be used to make cushion covers or kitchen towels by embroidering or painting over the x's in the design. For creating a wall artwork you'll need a burlap canvas, a needle, yarn and the template. To download the template and for the complete tutorial go here.
