Craftster Pick of the Week – Houdini Cross Stitch


It's the Craftster Pick of the Week - brought to you by Mr X Stitch!

Time for another look at some of the great work featured in the forums at Craftster. Note: Although they’re the pick of this week, they may have appeared before this week.
This week’s pick is brought to us by Dorion, who did a cross stitch portrait of the famous magician Houdini.

  • So awesome! You can see every one of those 80 hours in that; it’s so tidy and details. I remember this craftster post and how serendipitous finding that perfect frame was, too. A completely awesome complete package!
