Tools and Materials

To make the "Measure Twice, Cut Once" cross-stitch, you'll need: to download the PDF pattern; embroidery floss (see pattern key for colors needed; we use DMC brand since all craft stores carry it); 14-count white cross-stitch material; size 24 tapestry needles (more than one because they’re easy to misplace!); a 5-inch embroidery hoop; scissors; stitchery tape; and a frame (optional).
