Monopoly Board Cross Stitch by rhaben Monopoly Board Cross Stitch by rhaben
I made this pattern and sewed it many years ago for my at-the-time boyfriend (he's my husband now). It is large enough to use as a game board and my husband framed it (he made the frame) using lexan so that it would be scratch resistant.

That's fantastic!
I think I've seen this on the sprite stitch forums as a finished piece, do you have the pattern you used to make it?

Hi would you email a copy of your instructions? I made this about 15 yrs ago and just found it in storage and have about 5% left to finish but lost the instructions. Thanks donna veryblessed22@yahoo.com

This is awesome! Did you ever play on the board? It must have taken a long time to get it looking that good. :)

Do you sell your chart? If so I'd be interested in getting it. I'm a huge Monopoly fan and have lots of boards but this would be extra special.

If not it's fine! I shall just keep oogling yours lol

Thank you, behindthesofa and Ulla-Andy.

I know what you mean, behindthesofa, about not liking to backstitch. It does get a bit tedious, and in the case of this one, so many straight lines had to be stitched.

Great work. It looks really great. I'd definitely be put off by the backstitch though, that's always my least favourite part.

Thank you. It really wasn't hard to sew, but it was a TON of backstitching!
