Carpe Diem - Modern Cross Stitch Kit

SKU: 0004

"Carpe Diem" a modern counted cross stitch kit with hand painted fabric (your choice of evenweave or aida). For when you or someone you know just needs that reminder to 'Seize the day'! A great reminder to hang in a home office, a bedroom, or a DIY gift for a crafty friend!

This is a great pattern to stitch up as a birthday gift, for your BFF or just for yourself if you need a reminder! This modern cross stitch kit is perfect for the person who loves modern design, typography, inspirational quotes and taking some time to chill. Just make a cuppa (or G&T!), sit down and relax whilst making a bright, modern, inspirational piece of artwork for your home.

This Stitchsperation comes as a kit. Each kit contains:

1x 4 page printed counted cross-stitch chart;
1x one of a kind painted 28ct evenweave fabric, with pre-overlocked/serged edges to prevent fraying, measuring approximately 49 x 33.5cm (19.5 x 13");
2x bobbins of black DMC stranded embroidery floss;
2x gold plated cross-stitch needles size 24;
1x free Stitchsperation chart;
All in a resealable black washer and string envelope.

The kits are designed, handmade and assembled by me in my studio in beautiful Somerset. I paint every piece of fabric by hand so variations will occur.

You have a choice of 28ct evenweave or 14ct aida fabric in the following colours (see images for colour examples):

Neon Pink

Please note, this listing is NOT for a finished piece, the photos are just examples, the kit is for you to DIY or as a great DIY gift for a friend!

The design measures 82 stitches across and is 77 stitches high. When stitched on 28 count evenweave the design measures approximately 15.5 x 14cm (6 x 5.5"). It should use approximately two 8m skeins of floss (included) if split into strands of 3, less if you use the traditional 2 strands. The painted area of the evenweave measures approximately 23 x 26cm (9 x 10").

The only other piece you need to complete the kit is an embroidery frame of your choice to keep the fabric taught while you stitch and perhaps a frame to hang it in pride of place when it's finished. Please note, the 11" square embroidery hoop in photos is NOT included.


UPGRADE OPTIONS - You can now add to your Stitchsperation kit! Choose from 8" snap frames, needleminders and three colours of 'Little Gem's' scissors to make the kit the perfect gift!
