This project was designed by Samantha Purdy, a Canadian Cross Stitch Designer and we just love her simple, folk inspired designs. We worked with Samantha as part of our Hoop Club Subscription box.
Everything you need is contained in this kit including instructions, full colour cross stitch chart, thread, needle, fabric (please note the fabric isn't printed in cross stitch kits), hoop, wadding and a backing disc to finish off your hoop when you're done.
The kit just uses three simple stitches so you could have a go at this if you were a beginner. I estimate it would take you between 5 and 10 hours to complete? Maybe more, but either way, it's a lovely kit to get your teeth into and should last you a while. Remember that cross stitch kits don't come with the pattern printed onto them, you build up the pattern onto the fabric using the guide, with your stitches.
Don't worry if you think you'll need some help with this, you can find a tutorial for this kit on our YouTube channel here.
