Cross Stitch Coasters

The Bernina V6 digitizing software has a wonderful cross stitch program. It is so simple to use. A grid opens up, you "click" in a square to add an "x" and in no time, you have a cross stitch design. There also is an auto button that will turn a drawing into a cross stitch design. Quite fascinating. Of course I had to make some wool felt coasters using a couple of the designs I made for Christmas. I think they turned out pretty good. I did all of the cross stitching on a single layer of felt, then added a second layer on the back and stitched the straight stitch border. I trimmed around all the edges with a rotary cutter that pinks the edges. Cute. Jerilynn
