This one of a kind piece of either 28ct evenweave or 14ct aida (perfect for beginners) is hand painted by me in rainbow colours. It measures approximately 49 x 34cm (20 x 13.5") and is perfect for stitching up any of the Stitchsperation patterns.
The edges are over-locked so you are free to start stitching right away without worrying about fraying and the colour is set so you don't have to worry about any colour transferring to your hands or the thread while you stitch. The fabric will happily stand up to a gentle hand wash once your piece is finished.
You will not receive the evenweave pictured in the photos, this is just for colour/style reference, your piece will be painted to order. Due to the handmade nature of these pieces, colours/pattern may slightly differ. Please note that colours may slightly differ due to screen setting variations.
This fabric is hand painted to order. Please allow 3-5 days for your order to ship. All orders are shipped using Royal Mail.
Hand painted rainbow fabric - aida or evenweave
Aida or Evenweave?
Both these fabrics produce the same size design.
Aida is what I call, 'traditional' cross stitch fabric. If you did cross stitch as a kid, you probably did it on this. The holes are very obvious and you can clearly see where the stitches go. Aida is quite stiff and and doesn't always require a frame or hoop to stitch on. Sticthsperation kits come with 14ct aida which means your design will have 14 stitches per inch. This is perfect for beginners.
Evenweave may seem a little tricker as there are lots of holes, but produces a very clean background which can make the finished kit look like a print from a distance. The term evenweave applies to any fabric that is "evenly woven", so it has the same number of threads per inch in both the vertical and horizontal directions, and all the threads have the same thickness. Evenweave has more drape than aida so it's great if you want to make your finished piece into a cushion or bag. Stitchsperation kits come with 28ct evenweve, this means there are 28 stitches per inch if you stitch through every hole but the trick with evenweave is to stitch through every other hole, therefore getting 14 stitches per inch - the same as the aida!
