Stamped cross stitch falls in between two categories - counted cross stitch and hand embroidery. Stamped cross stitch is a design made of X's stamped onto a tightly woven fabric. These X's are stitched over with floss or yarn. Some stamped cross stitch designs are a bit complex and require counting how many stitches are to be made in a certain color.
There are many stamped cross stitch kits available in wall art, baby quilts, and household items just like embroidery.
Stamped cross stitch works up quickly and is a nice alternative to a complicated counted cross stitch pattern.
