What do you do with your cross stitch design when you’re finished?
All patterns are designed to fit in an 8 x 10 frame. So we say frame it and hang it on your wall so that everyone knows where you stand on the 2000s. Or.. If you’re looking for something to really sink your teeth into, we think these cross stitch designs look super cute stitched into a little throw pillow. Grandma will be very proud.. and probably a little confused. Check out the info on the Pillow Kits below.
PILLOW KITS *Note, while the instruction booklet is thorough and walks you through all the steps to make your pillow, these pillow kits require some sewing experience and access to a sewing machine will save you like a million hours.
