Vampire Diaries Cross Stitch

The Vampire Diaries will be premiering soon.  I really can't wait.  Just what I need to fill my much needed vampire void until True Blood premiers again next summer.  When I first started watching VD I wasn't sure I was going to like it....but it was really good as the story line progressed. 

In honor of the upcoming premiere here is my Vampire Diaries Cross Stitch.  When I say it is EASY I mean super easy ANYONE CAN DO THIS....\... It is not for Resale.  I created it for personal use only.  If you save this please leave a comment.

If you want to post on your blog...please post a link back to my blog.  If all goes well I will post tons more FREE patterns.  If you have a problem downloading the pattern email and I will send it to you.

On the pattern you will find I changed the colors.....The VAMPIRE DIARIES is in a burnt orange, and the ribbon is in black.  I colored it that way so the pattern will be easier to read. 

*Black 14 Count  - Cross Stitch FabricThis is usually what you ask for but any brand is fine.  Cut to fit in a 5x7 frame.  I personally put a masking tape around the edges so the cloth will not fray. 
*Red Embroidery floss
*White Embroidery floss
*Frame for your finished product
*Cross Stitch needle
*Print out the attached pattern...(not for resale)

If you have never cross stitched the following instructions are for you. You can do this...even if you don't think you are a crafty person. 

There are 6 stains of "string" on a stran of Embrodry floss.  You need to snip off the string and separate all but 2 of the strans and then put them on a needle leaving just pulling an inch threw the eye. 

Find the center point of your 5 1/2 x 71/2 landscape fabric.  I find this by folding the fabric in half both ways. 

On the pattern find your center point.  The center point is the R in vampire. 

Push your needle threw the center of the fabric in the back.  DO NOT pull the thread all of the way threw the hole.  It is just easy to tie a small knot in the string.  As you get started you will get the hang of this.

Finish the letters 1st then get started on the read ribbon. 

There are so many ways you can finish this pattern.  I just framed it. 

If you use this pattern I want to see your finished product please post a comment below with a link or email me at vampirecraftin at

Happy Craftin!  Again if you do this Craft Please Post in Vampire Craftin Flicker group or in a comment.
