If you’d like an easier way to quickly identify the count of cross stitch fabric from your stash, our printable cross stitch ruler is here to save the day!

Picture this: you’re excited to start a new project and you need a piece of 14 ct fabric, but is the piece you’re looking at 16, 11, or 18 count? No worries! With our user-friendly printable cross stitch ruler, you can quickly and accurately determine the fabric count, making your stitching journey a breeze.

Why Didn’t I Put a Label On It?

While labeling fabric sounds like a solution, let’s be real – who does it?

Plus, labels can damage fabric (rusty pin, anyone?) or fall off.

That’s why we’re introducing our handy, free printable cross stitch ruler for our email subscribers at Lost in Cross Stitch.

Let’s take a look at how this simple tool makes your stitching life easier and more enjoyable.

Making Your Printable Cross Stitch Ruler Last

You probably don’t want to print the ruler every time you need it. These tips can help you make it last!

  1. Laminate It: For a durable and reusable ruler, consider laminating it. This simple step can protect it from wear and tear.
  2. Cover with Contact Paper: If laminating isn’t an option, use clear contact paper to give it a protective coating. You could put a piece of light card under it before you laminate, to give it a bit more body. Or, print onto light card to cut out a step!
  3. Proper Storage: Store your ruler in a flat, dry place to prevent curling or damage. A folder or a craft drawer is perfect.

Choosing the Right Fabric

With this ruler, quickly pick the perfect fabric count for your design every time.
