A deck of playing cards and 52 cross stitch designs all in one !
A vintage set of Bucilla Victorian design playing card patterns with so many uses.
The cards can be used as a normal deck of playing cards, for stitching the adorable patterns (one on every card) for card or tag making, collage or mixed media. The cards would also look great framed as a gift for a stitching enthusiast in a craft room.
The box also contains two cards with stitching guidelines and recommendations for embroidery floss to use and so on.
They come in their original box.
The cards are normal playing card size 9 cm x 6.5 cm.
Each double-sided card has a picture of the finished design on one side and the cross stitch pattern on the other. I have included examples in my photographs. The variation in pattern means there are bound to be designs you will love to stitch for every occasion. There are images of cats, butterflies, flowers, cherubs, hearts and Valentine's patterns, fruit, tea and coffee pots, fans, children, a Victorian child astride a galloping rabbit and more !
The box is a little scuffed but the contents are clean and in excellent, I would say unused, condition.
Great for a little treat if you are a keen stitcher or know someone who is. Would make a lovely stocking filler.
