Plot a Cross Stitch Design
Here's something you probably didn't think you could do with Excel-design a cross stitch pattern you can sew into a handmade craft. Excel's worksheet grid makes it a perfect tool for creating new designs or copying classics for all kinds of cross stitch crafts, such as pillows, towels, framed pieces, and more. You can even code the design to indicate what color of thread to use. To begin this project, sketch a design on paper and decide what thread colors to use.
