The kit includes:
Basic illustrated directions
One blunt tapestry needle
One piece of 14-count Aida Fabric
Floss in the colors needed
All you need to supply is the scissors and the frame to finish it off. The finished piece will look best framed in a 6x8 or 5x7 frame.
These kits do NOT come with a hoop. These kits do contain a high quality Aida fabric that is stiff enough to be stitched without a hoop. With larger stitches, hoops can be extra helpful and I recommend a simple plastic hoop (not wood) that can be used for many projects.
New to cross-stitch? Don't fret. The basics of cross-stitch are about learning one simple stitch. You can pick up the basics in a couple of minutes. This kit is a great simple starter project and is just the right size to not be too overwhelming.
