Love the patterns - always turn out great!
Adorably Simple Cross Stitch
I was immediately hooked on cross stitching from the moment I was introduced to it almost 20 years ago. If you are orderly and analytical, like me, then cross stitching is THE perfect creative outlet. I mean, what’s more orderly and analytical than counting?!
Back then, it was hard to find simple patterns that had a polished style. So much of what was being offered was either way too complicated or just too old fashioned, so I started doing my own thing.
Designing patterns is so much fun, but even more than that, is actually stitching them. The handiwork is SO important to me and it is what makes Sewingseed different. You will always see an actual stitched example in my photos, tried and tested by me. I wouldn't expect you to take on a Sewingseed project that I haven't done myself. It is my commitment to the craft.
If you have never cross stitched before, I encourage you to try it. If you are like me, and like to keep your hands busy, it is a fabulous craft to learn! And if you can count, you can do it!
Thanks for stopping by!

I love to cross stitch, but what I love even more is adorable projects that you can actually accomplish! Sewingseed is my vision to motivate others to be as excited about stitching as I am. xo Tina
The majority of the patterns in my shop are great for beginners and my instructions are written with the beginner in mind. If you've never tried cross stitching, I encourage you to dive in! It is easier than you think and you will have a lot of fun watching your creation come to life as you stitch!
All of my designs are my own and I have personally stitched every pattern in an effort to determine the ease of stitching and accuracy of each one. The photos you see are of my stitched examples. Although stitching techniques can vary, the pictures will give you an idea of what your finished product might look like.
When considering a kit from my shop, please know that they are not recommended for children under 10 years old, and they should be kept out of the reach of babies and smaller children.
If you don't see your favorite design in a kit and would like to make a special request, you can contact me here http://www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=Sewingseed.
Please know that I will do my best to assist you with any questions you may have regarding your order. I am also happy to offer stitching advice and tips, just contact me!
All kits are assembled in my smoke free studio and my kitties are not allowed to help although they do sit and watch longingly as I cut the floss.

Packages are shipped out on Monday - Friday (except for postal holidays).
Please see my announcement section for current processing times.
Orders over $150 will be sent with signature confirmation.
UK customers - orders over £15 (around $23) are subject to customs fees and ordering more than one kit at a time will put you over the threshold. You may be assessed 20% VAT plus an £8 handling charge from Royal Mail, and those charges are your responsibility. Please consult the customs department for further information, www.hmrc.gov.uk/customs/post/
I do declare the full price paid on items (excluding shipping) in packages that go through customs. That may impose extra fees, taxes, duties for you at the time of delivery. As a buyer you are solely responsible for all customs fees and taxes so please check with your local customs agency. I will not put false information on Customs Forms, so please do not ask. Thank you.
Shipping is broken down into countries that I ship to on a regular basis. If your country is not listed, it falls within the "Everywhere Else" shipping profile.
If your order is a gift and you would like it shipped directly to the gift recipient, please provide that information in notes to seller when you place your order. If you'd like a note included to the recipient, I can help you with that as well. Just let me know the message you would like to include when you place your order.
Refunds and Exchanges
Kits can be returned for a refund within 14 days of the order date ONLY if the kit materials are unused and in original condition. If your order was a Christmas gift placed in the month of December and you would like to return or exchange, please contact me before January 3rd. The original shipping charge is not refundable. You must first contact me for authorization (RMA#) prior to any return. Items returned without authorization are not eligible for a refund and they will not be returned. You are responsible for the return postage unless the fault lies with me. In the unlikely event your kit arrives damaged, please contact me for a replacement. Thank you!
My listings are clearly marked as patterns, so please be sure of your purchase before you commit to buy. If you have questions about the pattern, please ask before you order. My PDF patterns have been tested and you should not experience any problems opening them; however, if you do not have the appropriate program or system requirements for Adobe, please let me know and I will help you troubleshoot the problem. If you are still unable to open the PDF after we have exhausted all efforts to fix the problem, I will mail you a printed copy of the pattern. If you made a mistake in ordering, contact me as soon as possible. Refunds can be given if my records indicate you have not downloaded the pattern. Once my records indicate the pattern has been downloaded, the window for refunds has closed.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you experience the unfortunate event of losing your PDF Pattern after a computer crash, you can contact me for a duplicate PDF Pattern. Please send me a message along with your invoice number and I will resend your PDF pattern to the e-mail associated with the invoice.
**LOST MAIL PACKAGES**
US customers - All packages are sent with tracking. If it has been 14 days since your order shipped and it has not yet been received, please let me know so that I can investigate the package whereabouts with the USPS. If it appears the package has been lost, I will send a replacement.
