Counted Cross-stitch Fridge Magnets

Hello! This is my first instructable. It's not really something complicated that requires step-by-step directions, but I still wanted to share the idea. Enjoy!

Materials

You will need...

Embroidery floss
Embroidery needles
Scissors
Canvas
A simple image you like
Self adhesive magnets (I purchased leftovers from a print shop, but they are also available in arts and crafts stores)
Depending on the size of your canvas, you should use a different size of image. For exemple, if your canvas is very big, a complex image will turn out huge. I had good results with nintendo sprites on big canvas.

Cross-stitch It

So here it is, you cross-stitch your image on the canvas, then cut around it. I suggest coating the outlines with mod podge glue once it's cut out, to protect it and keep it from fraying. Then you slap a magnet in the back, and voil�got a sweet cross-stitched fridge magnet.
