Our joy Christmas cross stitch kit is created using DMC stranded cotton in festive shades of red and green, along with Toho seed beads to add a hint of Christmas sparkle to your embroidery hoop!
We make our Christmas cross stitch kits by hand, in the UK
Stitched onto 14 count white aida, we designed this Christmas cross stitch kit using full cross stitches, ¾ cross stitches, back stitch and long stitch. If you are brand new to cross stitch, or only have experience creating full cross stitches - don’t worry! Our instructions take you through creating each stitch step by step, with a mixture of diagrams, photographs and written directions. We also have video tutorials to help you with some other things you need to know for the project, such as: how to create a knot, how to separate stranded cotton and how to place your fabric inside an embroidery hoop. Of course, we are on hand too, if you have any additional questions that we may not have addressed!
Whether you are planning on stitching the kit yourself, or want to spread a little joy this Christmas by gifting a DIY craft kit to someone special, we have designed a kit to encourage a time of quiet and calm. Christmas can be such a hectic time, we wanted to create something to help you take time out, sit down and be creative. It doesn’t matter if you want to stitch the project on the train as you’re heading to work or want to sit down in front of the TV on Christmas day and enjoy a little downtime - we hope either way, you find a bit of joy this Christmas!
To make the project as easy as possible for you to complete, we have included all of the resources you will need to stitch the kit. The only thing you need to provide is a pair of scissors! You will receive all of the materials below:
