DIY Mini Tin Box Tutorial

Mini Tin Box Tutorials



2 Tone Cross Stitch

Use your scrap 14 count Aida fabric in your choice of colors to create this easy project. Look for your choice of 2 tone colors, one dark and one light or you can also use complementary colors or any color you wish.

You will need:

  • Pinoy Stitch Mini Tin box with wood frame available for purchase here.
  • 14 count Aida fabric in your choice of color
  • Any DMC thread, 2 tone (one dark, one light) or you can try the new DMC Coloris threads which will give you different color shades just using a single thread
  • Aleene's Stop Fraying

Cut your fabric about 3" length x 3" width. If you are comfortable stitching on smaller pieces, you can use scraps. The whole piece once finished is about 1 7/8" width x 1".

Use the above instructions to create your own 2 tone band. You can interchange the dark and light or you can ignore the dark/light combination and just use DMC color thread to get the different shades.

Once done stitching, leave 1 square column and row around the stitch area and cut. Immediately apply Aleene's stop fraying on the edges. To attach to the inner frame you can permanently use white glue or you can use glue dots to temporarily attach and replace with another band of your choice.
