Our mini dachshund cross stitch kit is a great little craft kit for beginners; whether you fancy stitching your own sausage dog, or are looking for a gift for a creative friend.
Get stuck into one of our dog breed cross stitch patterns!
We create our cross stitch patterns using a mixture of different stitches: full cross stitches, ¾ cross stitches, backstitch and longstitch. Each stitch is easy to learn - we know that ¾ cross stitches might sound a bit scary, but our detailed diagrams and instructions make them simple! It is really important to us that you have as much information as we can give you so that it is really straightforward for you to complete the project. We combine the use of written instructions, including top tips and step by step directions, with diagrams, photographs and video tutorials to help you along the way.
Everything that is needed to create the dachshund cross stitch is included in the kit, to make the experience as relaxing for you as possible. We hope you find it really calming to sit down and spend some time stitching by yourself or with some friends. It’s a great activity to do whilst you sit and think, listen to your favourite music or watch the TV (or if you’re looking for an activity to calm you down on the busy commute to work!). The repetitive nature of creating cross stitches is really relaxing, but also rewarding; as this is such a small design, it is amazing to see how quickly the pattern grows and how much you can achieve in a short space of time.
