Cute Collaborations: Cross Stitch Kits

Also new today! Kawaii  Breakfast cross stitch kits in collaboration with @tinyotterpaws

Since I was sharing a space at Renegade with The Bellwether, we had an extra push to finish our new collaboration – Kawaii Breakfast cross stitch kits! I can’t pick a favourite – I love how the egg looks on the coloured fabric, and I love the freeform sprinkles on the donut, but they’re all amazing. I should stress that Claire stitched up all the samples, though apparently they are all pretty easy if you’re  beginner like me. I will definitely be giving them a go sometime.

You can buy the PDF charts either individually or as a set of four from my shop and there will be kits available from The Bellwether soon, which will provide you with everything you need to stitch them as coasters and pocket mirrors too! Wouldn’t they be great for Christmas gifts?
