This is my first attempt to do cross stitch on felt. Ever since I started doing felt craft, I hardly do any cross stitching which is actually my first love. No, I haven't forgotten it...I simply do not have the time...*sigh!*
Anyway, when my son's 14 year old classmate requested me to make a pink heart keychain with lots of letterings, I simply had to take the opportunity to cross stitched it instead of sticking felt/foam letterings.
For the front view, she requested to put the letters i, l, y, s. f, d, m. Don't ask me what the letters stand for...I guess it's I Love You So F..D...Much? I decided to use pastel colors felt and freehand stitching for the letters.
For the rear, she asked to put the letters SN,UK. This is when I decided to cross stitched the letters. Here's how it looks like. It's quite tricky because the letters consist of full stitch, half stitch and back stitch.
