Happy Birthday Cross Stitch Cube Finish

Double whammy today: not only a pattern finish but a finished object! I finished Amelia’s Happy Birthday cross stitch during naptime on her birthday yesterday, and finished the cube last night. I had to wait for daylight to take photos, and here it is!

I loved the easy cube finish that I did for the Beekeeper cross stitch, so I decided to try my luck again. I like these cubes because they only need a few supplies, they’re quick to assemble, and all the applique pins can be taken out if I ever decide to re-finish it later. Plus, a cube is a fun decoration instead of the usual frame on the wall.

(For more details on the actual process of making a covered cube, check out my post here.)


Ta da!




Since this is also the first time I’m sharing the finished pattern, here are a few favorite process pics:







Even though it was down to the wire, I’m glad I finished this just in time for Amelia’s first birthday. Incorporating her birthday crown is the perfect excuse to bring it out every year!

I’m linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish Friday.
