Cards and Accessories

Just to note a few of the more important Cross Stitch accessories you may need to know about, and will no doubt discover for yourself on your Cross Stitch journey.

Cards

Cross Stitch Cards give that personal touch to your good wishes when sending a card for any occasion.  Birthdays, anniversaries, in sympathy, mother’s day, father’s day, best sister award, Christmas, Easter, new job, moving house, passing exams, passing a driving test, winning at football, any occasion you can think of you can make a card for with that personal touch.

Robin CardThere are an abundance of cards with different apertures in a multitude of colors for all sizes of project. The ones we use are the 3-fold cards so our Cross Stitch design has a card backing, and you can also put a bit of padding in there too if you wish.

If using 2-fold cards there are also some plain and beautifully designed backing papers you can buy, or you can of course make your own backing papers – and cards too for that matter! You can also fray the edges of your fabric and use a non-aperture card by just sticking the design onto the front of the card.

All card packs come with envelopes of matching colors too.

Double –sided tape

To stick the various parts of your card together you will need a good quality double-sided tape cut and stuck to the back of the aperture, where your ElephantCross Stitch design will fit. Place the fabric face down on the back of the card and fold in place – do not at this point take off the 2nd backing of the tape, you don’t want to stick the design into the card until you’ve checked what it looks like through the aperture.  If it’s not right, move it about until you are happy with it, then you can peel off the double-sided tape backing and firmly press the design onto the card. Next step is to put double-sided tape on the fold in part of the card.

Tip! Make sure you are folding the correct side in or your card will open back to front!

Stork ScissorsScissors

When working with fabric and threads a lot it is important to have to correct scissors as the kitchen shears are not quite right for continual use with your nice clean, dainty Cross Stitch. Invest in a good pair of small needlework scissors.  These are Stork or sometimes called Crane Scissors and are the ones we have used for about 15 years.  Anyone that dare use them for cutting anything other than thread is heavily sentenced!

Mill Hill Seed Beads

Beads

Quite often in some of the more elaborate designs there are sewn in beads. When beads are used in a design the Cross Stitch pattern will tell you where to place them. Beads are sewn into the design using half Cross Stitch, so that is just one diagonal stitch and not the second that makes the cross.  Mill Hill Glass Seed Beads are generally used for this purpose and are good quality and of an even size.
