'Summer Garden' Cross Stitch Kit

£29.00 GBP


This Butterfly themed cross stitch kit with a fresh pastel pallet is designed to brighten your summer.

The Summer Garden features sherbet bright, Butterflies perching on a delicate garden fence. The fence is fashioned in to letters spelling 'Summer'. Use the chart to map the design in stitches across your fabric.

If you select the 'deluxe kit' option from the drop down box then a 7 inch embroidery hoop and a pair of embroidery scissors will be inlcuded. This means you can start straight away without the need to postpone your project to source suitable tools. You may not be aware of this, but embroidery hoops hold the fabric taught whilst you stitch. This tension helps you to handle the fabric more easily, helps you to see the holes clearly and keeps your stitches nice and even.

What is Cross Stitching and why should I try it?

Cross Stitching is a form of embroidery using a simple cross stitch to map out a design on a blank fabric. The cross is formed by stitching two diagonal, overlaping lines. Stitches are counted, using a chart to transfer the design on to the fabric.

All my kits come, fully illustrated, simple getting started instructions.

Cross Stitching is a mindful, relaxing process. The repetitive, soothing stitching helps you to unwind and focus whilst creating something beautiful. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the design emerge as you stitch across the fabric.
