Black & White and Stitched All Over

A few weeks ago, I featured this bathroom on my Friday faves.  I loved the simplicity of the design, the contrast between black and white, and the Scandinavian flair it possessed.  I let you all know that I was going to use it as inspiration for an upcoming project and here it is!

Cross stitched designs are all over this fall, so I decided to create my own take on the trend using the inspiration from that beautiful bathroom wall.  Burlap has a very visible weave, which made it really easy to measure and stitch these mini cross-hatches all over a length of the material.

There could be so many iterations of this same project using different patterns or colors – the possibilities are literally endless.

If you think it’s a project you’re interested in giving a shot, keep reading for the full tutorial!


  • Burlap
  • Yarn
  • Yarn Needle
  • Chalk
  • Ruler

ONE mark the placement of your crosses on the back of your burlap using chalk and a ruler.  Each of my rows are 4″ apart, with each mark within a row 8″ apart.  Every other row is staggered. TWO using a threaded yarn needle, make a stitch that is six threads wide. THREE coming back from the opposite direction, make another six thread wide stitch. FOUR cut both of the loose ends and tie into a knot.

Continue this same stitch on each of your marked spots.  It took about 40 minutes to do the entire runner, but a pillow cover or some coasters would be a cute and quick(er) take on this project!

I like the way it turned out, and since I’m scheming up a mostly black and white theme for my house this fall, this runner will work well through the autumn season.

I hope you’ll give it a try!

Have a SPLENDID Tuesday!

    I know what I’m making for Christmas gifts! Any tips on keeping your burlap “square”? When I cut to size, it seems a bit skewed…

    Wow! This is beautiful! What a lovely idea and it’s something that doesn’t seem too difficult. Thanks so much for sharing this!
