Kansas City Royal Moon Cross Stitch Pattern

royalmoonWe love our Royals! Whether we are winning or allowing other teams to win, that Royal moon will forever shine over Kansas City.

I created this cross stitch pattern last summer.  I decided to post the pattern to my site for others to enjoy.  I’m pretty proficient at many forms of needlework …. but cross stitch is definitely not one of those forms.  So trust that this design is very simple.

The aida (I did this on 11 count with 3 strands of floss) was hand dyed using layers of blue acrylic dye that had been thinned with water.  This gives the aida a beautiful mottled effect. Please note that you can use dye or paint, but be careful that you don’t “clog up” the stitching holes of the aida.  (this is a more definite possibility if you are using paint)  After the aida is dry, iron with a very hot and steamy iron.

The floss colors that I used are black, white and gold metallic. To save the black ink of the printer, I created the chart showing the outlines of the skyline.  You can either keep this as an outline or fill in with stitches as I did.   The chart is included below. If you have trouble with the copy, please feel free to email me at underthemoon3@aol.com

Enjoy!
