Make every thread count with cross stitch kits
Cross stitch is a great way to pass time and have something to show for your efforts at the end. And cross stitch kits make things easier by providing everything you need to complete a single project. Often they’ll include a canvas printed with the pattern, a hoop to hold the canvas taut and all the threads you’ll need. eBay's collection of kits has options for beginning and advanced stitchers alike.
Holiday cross stitch
Relaxing with some stitching is a great way to take a break from the hustle and bustle of preparing for a holiday, whether you’ve been Christmas shopping, preparing for an Easter egg hunt, setting up an Eid feast or preparing a Hanukkah festival. And if you pick up a holiday cross stitch kit or three, you’ll end up with some unique decorations to hang on the wall as well. It's a great way to get into the holiday spirit!
An old cross stitch tradition is to stitch words and phrases into a pattern as a reminder or a blessing on a home and its inhabitants. You’ll find a selection that ranges from traditional to more modern sweary or humorous quotes, sayings and jokes. Warm a heart or make someone laugh with a cross stitch quote as a gift.
Landscapes and animals
It’s amazing to see the depth of shading you can achieve with cross stitch, and it allows you to produce some amazing landscapes and animal portraits. Tigers are an all-time favourite, as are seascapes and fields of flowers. Fans of Australiana will also find some gorgeous native animal portraits and more fanciful options like May Gibbs’ gumnut babies.
What to look for
When you’re looking at cross stitch kits, keep in mind the supplies you already own, and make sure the kit includes everything else you’ll need. Typically you’ll require a minimum of a cross stitch needle, thread in varying colours and shades, scissors, a frame and the base canvas.
