The full cross stitch kit comes with easy-to-follow instructions, a colour printed pattern on one page of A4 paper, a pre-sorted Carlos the caterpillar thread holder, DMC stranded cotton in 7 shades, pale pink Zweigart 14 count aida fabric (perfect for beginners) and a DMC branded size 24 needle. This box 6 design was created by Faye Walsh of Little Dove Designs to put a spring in your step!

 

lollies

 

This lovely project provides just the right amount of crafting - it’s totally manageable and can easily be completed within a couple of weeks!  Just imagine, as the nights get lighter, you can enjoy a lovely April evening with your feet up and your beautiful cross stitch project.

After your spring cleaning (or not if you're anything like me!), April is a great time to give yourself a break and treat yourself to a scrumptious, handmade lollipop from a UK small business. Keep an eye out for the sun shining the brightest and create a rainbow effect with the sweet butterfly window sticker! Simply place on your window and it will catch the rays, reflecting a beautiful array of colours into your room.

You will also receive a stunning posy of dried flowers (photo below of an example), sure to be the sweetest spring decoration. Pop them into a dainty glass or vintage cup and the beauty will speak for itself!

Once your cross stitch project is finished you can gift it to a loved one and make them feel extra special. The project could be framed, displayed in a hoop or even turned into a little cushion (click here to watch some video tutorials on these finishing styles).

Lots of our subscribers choose to treat their loved one to a surprise caterpillar club box, as a special pick me up. Enter their address at checkout, leave us a note at checkout and we'll hand write a personalised gift note to be included in their box. 

It's a great pick-me up when you least expect it. Often people forget and it brightens things up when your new box arrives on your doorstep at the end of a long day! A wonderful way to reduce screen time and zone out while learning a new crafty skill.
