Personalise With Cross Stitch Letters
Teach yourself embroidery with this crafty tea cup kit. These cross stitch tea cup cards are easy to make and would look lovely hanging up on a wall or sitting on a shelf. It teaches you how to make a tea cup shape using a simple stitched outline and how to personalise it with a cross stitch letter. The first step is to trace out the lettering onto the card using the sheet of tracing paper provided. Next, use the soft cream tapestry wool to embroider the detail, then simply write a message, seal and send. They’re great for birthdays, anniversaries, thank you notes, or just because; And are a great gesture to show somebody how much you care.
The crafty tea cup cards are A5 in size and printed on an eco friendly brown kraft paper with vegetable oil based inks. The wildflowers are printed in black and are flowers Leah has grown and collected from her garden. The paper is soft and durable making stitching the paper extremely therapeutic. As they’re stitched all in one colour it also allows for a lovely rhythm of stitching without lots of stops, starts and re-threading of the needle.
Each embroidery kit is wrapped in tissue paper and presented boxed, branded with the product image on the front, making it ready for gifting.
This personalised embroidery kit uses a simple back stitch and cross stitch.
