Step 2: Tools and materials

You will need aida cloth or other fabric fit for cross stitch. The size of the image in the end will depend on your type of cloth and how far apart the holes in it are. I used a 7 aida cloth. In the end I find it a bit too small, but meh.

You will need 4 colours of embroidery floss, here are the ones I used :
Black : DMC 310
Dark green : DMC 895
Light green : DMC 3346
Red : DMC 817

You will need carbon paper to transfer the elder sign on the fabric. An embroidery hoop and a small screwdriver will be very helpful but you may do it without hoop (if you use a hoop though, you will need a screwdriver). I prefer wooden ones to elastic plastic ones.

You will obviously need scissors and a needle (embroidery needles are usually bigger and less sharp than sewing needles, and their eye is bigger).

You may find all of the above in a fabric shop.

In the end you will need a frame, but you should wait until the cross stitch is finish to take the measures.

No, no, no! That's all wrong! "May Cthulhu Eat This House" FIRST! Far better being sustenance for the dread Eldrich god than witnessing the eternal horrors and madness that remain in his wake...
Yes, I know. You are absolutely right. But I wanted it to sound like a traditional house blessing, and "first" would have puzzled non-cultists even more.
Ah, got it. Nice 'ible, I need to make one of these!
good job. nice work.
Thank you for the clear instructions, I just bought all the supplies! <br>I'm just putting &quot;May Cthulhu eat this house&quot; cause I want to start a fight with my boyfriend about how DUMB our house is.
Alright! <br>Let me know who wins! <br> <br>(Awesome comment is awesome! Made my boyfriend and I laugh out loud!)
Awesome pattern and awesomely done!
I love this. :)
Thank you!
I've heard a similar statement but they wanted to be eaten first to avoid watching the horror of everyone and everything being devoured.
That is correct, at least for true cultists. <br />Embrace the horror! <br />http://www.librarything.com/topic/61539 <br /> <br />...but obviously &quot;may Cthulhu eat this house first&quot; wouldn't work as well for a parody of a blessing and would puzzle even more those ungodly people who haven't heard of Cthulhu.
