Panarili - Faux Cross Stitch

Panarili - Faux Cross Stitch

Cross stitching is one of my first crafts I learned. I think I was about 6. About 30 years later, I learnted to cross stitch with polymer clay, and I think it is a beginning of series of interesting projects one can make using this technique. Very few tools, some time and patience and PC cross stitch embroidery pieces are ready! Follow and enjoy!

PANARILI - Enjoying life high in the mountains, grown up in a big city, cannot imagine life without family and clay-playing.  Love new challenges and experiences, but not adrenailne provoking) I got acquainted with clay 8-9 years ago and eversince we are friends.  Still exploring new possibilities and get inspiration from nature, colour and other crafts. Love simplicity in achiving cool effects.
