Readjusting a pattern

I have two patterns that I would like to put on one aida cloth, but one image is larger than the other and I would like them to be close to the same size. Is there anything that can be done?

    If you have the stitch count of both these designs lets say one is 70 x 70 stitches or 5" square if stitched on 14 count material and the other is 42 x 70 which is 3" x 5" on 14 count. Cut out the 5" sq. and the 3 x 5 using paper and position the paper in an eye pleasing arrangement on your fabric. You could then either baste or use a water soluable marking pen to mark these positions before you start stitching. Go to top

    Do a simple border on each side of the smaller design; or add a vine of small flowers to stretch the design out. There's lots of borders from which to choose. Go to top
