Celaeno Baseball cap (chart & Tutorial)
CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Tam's Creations
This truly unique design brought to you by Tams' Creations is possibly the first baseball cap made from scratch in cross stitch!
The project pack not only includes the cross stitch charts but Tam's Creations also designed a thorough tutorial for making the baseball cap from scratch. It contains plenty of tips and photos for getting it right.
You do not need a sewing machine to assemble the cap (though you can if you prefer). Following the template on the chart, each of the 7 sections can be backstitched and assembled using a slipstitch, using the templates on the cross stitch charts that neatly delimitate the borders - a fool-proof way of ensuring your cap is the exact right shape.
The Celaeno cross stitch design is a mix of tiny little motifs that can be stitched in various bright colors (as in the picture) or in more subdued - or monochromatic - tones. You can also mix and match solid and overdyed threads. Every section of the cap is a different design, making it fun and entertaining to cross stitch and decide which colors to use. Depending on your choice of background fabric and colors, you'll get a very different and unique effect.
