• Find a cross-stitch needlepoint pattern that you love.

• Enlarge the pattern so you can see the stitches clearly.

• Translate the stitches into squares or half-square-triangles of fabric.

• Choose your colors. Try to match the colors for the needlepoint thread, or come up with your own.

• Begin piecing in rows until your image takes shape!
