Kapow! Perfect for any comic book fan, this personalised cross stitch design can be stitched onto any piece of clothing you wish using the soluble canvas included, complete with the little ones name.
So easy to use, you simply tack the 14 count clear plastic canvas onto clothing of your choice (high quality cotton tshirts, baby grows, hoodies, cotton dresses, dungarees or even denim all works well), complete the cross stitch design as you would normally, then soak in warm water. The canvas simply dissolves away and leaves your beautiful stitching behind.
Our cross stitch patch kits are small, quick and great fun to stitch. They make very special handmade gifts. When finished, the patch measures 10cm x 12cm.
Bits and bobs supplied with your kit:
x Dissolvable canvas
x DMC stranded coloured thread
x Two pieces of ‘iron-on’ interface fabric (one to keep your clothing fabric stable whilst stitching and one to cover the completed stitches to keep it nice and soft against the skin)
x A needle (take care - unlike most needles used in cross stitch, this one is sharp with a small eye, so as not to make too large a hole in your clothing)
x Full instructions
x Alphabet pattern (so you can personalise your gift)
x Our illustrated ‘how to cross stitch’ guide
Other bits and bobs you will need:
x A piece of clothing - pick the size, type and colour that you like
x A tape measure
x An embroidery hoop large enough to fit the whole design (6 or 7 inches should do it - available from our accessories section)
x A pair of sharp scissors
x An iron and ironing board
x Cotton thread to temporarily tack the canvas to the clothing
