A while ago, I bought some wooden cross-stitch decoration kits (first in Berry while on holidays, then I found them in Spotlight, of all places, so I picked up a couple more!). I bought them with the intention of making them as Christmas ornaments, to use in an advent calendar, so I thought it was time to actually make them! It’s my contribution to Sewvember!
Each kit comes with thread in a range of colours, and a needle, plus charts with 6 different pictures, as well as the letters of the alphabet. And if that’s not enough variety, a few blank charts so you can make your own.
I started with the smallest wooden shape, and decided on the owl. Because owls are a thing, did you know?!
Looks pretty good from the front, I think. Not so much the back:
I have now made four – the car is especially for Connor (of course!). I have quite enjoyed doing these. But not so much to become any type of embroiderer or cross-stitcher – this kind of precut, small thing really is my limit!
