Crochet Cross Stitch Video Tutorial: I have also made a quick video tutorial on how I cross stitch on crochet. I hope you find it helpful!
Assembling a Crochet Block Video Tutorial: This video shows you how I have been assembling my blocks. It is a method that can be used with any size of project!
And now, block 8 is here! Featured on shades of what I will call 'sea foam', this block was by far the most challenging to make due to the lovely letters 'V' and 'X'. Did you know that there is only one animal with a common name that starts with X? The X-ray Tetra...that's it... That being said, I actually am very happy with how the animals turned out! The whale is one of my favorites, and I think the vampire bat would make a really cute Halloween decoration if you decided to get creative with the use of the graph! You'll notice that I originally graphed the teeth to be red, but for my purposes I decided it was just too creepy. You can decide what works best for you 😉
