Unleash your inner Gilmore Girl with this fabulous cross stitch kit, featuring the famous quote from Lorelai herself: "First I drink the coffee, then I do the things".

This piece features full crosses and a small amount of backstitching, so it's a great step up from the basics. Complete novice? Don't worry, we've got you covered with detailed instructions included with every kit.

This kit contains everything you need to create this beautiful 6" pink and black statement piece in standard colours (pinks). Want something a little different? Just get in touch with your colour choices, and I'll mock you up a preview and make sure you have everything you need for your own personalised piece. You also have everything you need to back this piece professionally with a felt circle, thread, and instructions.

Contents:
• Full colour cross stitch pattern
• Detailed black & white cross stitch instructions (basic full cross, quarter cross, backstitching, finishing, framing, backing. Available as a full-colour PDF file on request).
• White cotton 14 count Aida fabric
• 6" wooden embroidery hoop (last two photos show a different hoop style)
• DMC brand cross stitch threads
• 2 x DMC Needles (size 24)
• Pre-cut vegan-friendly felt backing circle
• Sewing thread (for felt backing circle)
• Length of ribbon for hanging
• Thread snippers (colour may vary)

You can also buy the 'Basic' kit which comes with all the above except the thread snippers, hoop, and backing fabric.

All presented wrapped in tissue inside a bright FCS branded box.

You will need:
• Coffee and cake

FAQs

Each pattern comes as multiple PDF files. You'll receive a selection including colour / black and white, backstitching only (if applicable) and often different sized symbols for easier viewing. A sample pattern is shown in the listing but this is just a section to give you an idea of what your pattern will look like, and may not reflect the same design you are actually purchasing. If you wish to see a sample of the actual chart, just ask. Some patterns will have two designs in one, in which case you will receive a selection of PDF charts. This is because Etsy only allows five files per listing. If you require a different variation, just ask.

If you're struggling to work from the patterns you've received with your order, please do get in touch and I'd be happy to send it to you in a different form. Each pattern can be rendered in several different ways (e.g. different sizes, symbols, colours, with or without backstitching), so we're sure to find something that's easy on your eyes.

To view PDF files you'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded free here: https://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/

First choose the file you wish to print. For black and white printers, and for simplicity, I recommend printing the 'symbols' file (rather than the 'symbols on colour'), but if you have a colour printer or just prefer the second file, it's there! These patterns are designed to be printed on standard A4 paper, so just opening the file and clicking 'print' is all you need to do! Please get in touch for US Letter patterns as I don't produce these as standard so they're made to order.

I've tried to ensure a good balance between the size of the symbols and the number of pages to be printed so paper isn't wasted. That said, if you do find the symbols too small to work with, just get in touch and I'll gladly enlarge the pattern for you so it's easier to work with. This way it will print over more pages, and each symbol will be larger.

    Lovely kit, one of the nicest I've bought! The little extras were a happy surprise too. The pattern is clear and my finished piece is now hanging on my bedroom wall!
