Stitched Pen Pot

2013Feb08 cross stitch decorated pen pot 1Do you remember the stitched letter rack I did a few months ago?  I now have a pen pot to match!
I had this mesh pen pot for Christmas and have now finished stitching the cross-stitch pattern.  It took several evenings to do and was much more fiddly than the letter rack (getting the needle out of the insides of the pots was tricky even for my little fingers!).  I love how it turned out though and it’s much more fun than a plain mesh pot. :)

I haven’t painted the edges in white acrylic like I did for the letter rack – I’m feeling a bit impatient and want to start using it on my desk!  What do you think – should I paint it like the letter rack or leave it as it is?


  1. such a cool idea! and id say go for painting the letter rack :)
