Roses are red and violets are blue - or are they? Not if the violets are the ones surrounding your special photograph in a joyful explosion of vibrant purples! Nestled on a bed of quaint polka dots, these beautiful blooms will be sure to add a touch of old-fashioned charm to any cherished photo. (Also available is Violets Aren't Blue Square, a companion 8"x 8" (2.66"x 2.66" opening) mat design.)
Purr Cat Cross Stitch offers you, the needlework enthusiast, original photo mats designed by L. C. Warren that let you add a personal touch to your favorite photograph. With a variety of original designs – from formal to fun - you can stitch the perfect mats for all your most cherished pictures.
The kit is hand assembled and comes with only top-of-the-line products: DMC 100% cotton Charles Craft aida cloth, DMC and/or Anchor 100% cotton embroidery floss and a John James tapestry needle. Everything else you need to create your mat is included: a full-color picture of the finished mat, complete and detailed charts for both the design and the back stitching, pre-cut and sorted embroidery floss in resealable plastic bags, and instructions on stitching and finishing techniques. As an added bonus the kit includes filament for graphing your cloth and a craft glue pen for sealing the edges of your completed mat.
