Glow in the Dark Cross Stitch Pattern Collection

Glow in the Dark Cross Stitch Pattern Collection

I'd like to take some time to talk about my featured glow-in-the dark pattern. A while back, Kreinik threads graciously featured this design on their blog. After having a serious fangirl moment, I realized that this really was a unique design that was possible thanks to some truly amazing things that could be accomplished with Kreinik threads. 

First of all, if you haven't seen my post on glow-in-the-dark threads and you're wondering about whether Kreinik threads are worth it, take a  look at my previous blog post comparing Kreinik and DMC glow-in-the-dark threads. You can also pick up a free pattern to practice using this thread yourself! 

What I love most about the different colors that Kreinik offers in their glow-in-the-dark series is that it offers the opportunity to have a design change when the lights are off to a completely new meaning. One of my favorite cross stitchers, Jess of CraftingGeek did this with a Marvel design and it's pure genius. The possibilities are endless!

It probably comes as no surprise to most of you that words speak to me strongly. A lot of my designs feature words or quotes that hold meaning to me that I've wanted to capture in a stitch. The design featured here was inspired by Carrie Fisher's words "I don't want life to imitate art. I want life to be art." And thus, "make art your life" was born.

But the designs don't stop there. I'm excited to announce that I have 2-3 additional patterns in the glow-in-the-dark series lined up. Now, that just requires testing them... until then, however, you can purchase this glow-in-the-dark pattern on my shop by clicking here!
