Put your hand up if you love animal print as much as I do.... is there anyone who doesn't love it?!
Now you can choose any Stitchsperation Mini Cross Stitch kit with your choice of animal print backgrounds.
Choose from 14ct Aida (perfect for beginners) or 28ct Evenweave in either Yellow with Neon Pink, Neon Pink with Teal or Bright Green with Teal.
These modern cross stitch kits are perfect for that person who loves animal print, 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.
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.
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 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.
The fabric in these kits is hand painted to order. Please allow 3-5 days for your kit to ship. All kits are shipped using Royal Mail.
Mini Kit + Animal Print Fabric
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!
