Back in the olden days of 2009 I designed these Stitch-a-Long Monthly Birthday Cakes cross stitch freebies exclusively for my friend’s Brooke’s Books Interactive Yahoo! group. This is still an active group of wonderful stitchy friends. Because there has been an uptick in demand for these designs from many whom are not in the Yahoo! group AND because said Brooke’s Books Yahoo! Group is filled to the brim with generous hearted stitchers, they have allowed me to post the cakes here for the wider interweb world. So, big THANK YOU, to Deb, Karen, Meg and all of the stitchers at BBI. You’re the BEST! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, to stitchers everywhere! Now you can stitch your cake and have it too! This listing is for the Summer Cakes: June, July & August Cakes. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You will need to know how to cross stitch & back stitch to complete these designs. You can find a beginner’s cross stitch tutorial here: SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS All of the Brooke’s Books Birthday Cakes are 53 x 90 stitches in diameter. The design can be applied to any evenweave fabric. The project’s finished size will depend on the stitch count of your fabric. (ie: If stitched on 14 count fabric over 1 thread, or 28 count fabric over 2 threads, the finished dimensions will be approximately 3.75″ x 6.5″.)
