Just to be clear, I’m not a huge fan of cross stitch. That is to say, I don’t hate it, but it’s not a craft I have lots of time for myself. However, on this occasion I have made an exception.
On holiday in France recently I came across a quilting/knitting/general craft shop (much to Simon’s disappointment) and found these cute little jam pot covers in aida fabric. Having just made a shit load of jam this seemed like the perfect accompanying craft to transform them into gifts.
I had some left over crewel wool from the Olde Towne crewel work project, which I used instead of embroidery thread and I found the pattern for free on this fab blog – instant gratification craft, you can’t often say that about cross stitich.
PS I still don’t like cross stitch
