Faux needlepoint? Faux sure! This Thanksgiving sampler was made with markers and graph paper. For design ideas, download our traditional sampler alphabet.
Start by creating a colorful border of Xs (one X in each box). Then, use a pencil to lightly draw letters and other shapes in the grid.
With marker, put Xs in the boxes your pencil line crossed, then erase the pencil marks.
Try other patterns and classic sayings, such as "Home is where the heart is" or "A stitch in time saves nine."
