I am experienced with cross stitch and thought this might be something easy and fun to pack in my purse and pass the time when I'm in waiting rooms or other idle situations that pop up. I did get a chuckle at the motley mix of floss brands in the pack, but it was all neatly assorted and the instructions are very easy to read. The aida squares are nice and stiff so you don't need a loop to work on these tiny little projects. I have a lot of friends who love Stardew so I thought it might be cute to make these with little messages to send in cards for them as a token of my thoughts.
All this aside, I wouldn't invest in this kit as an experienced cross-stitcher unless you're like me and looking for something easy to shove in your purse. However this would make a great gift for a friend who is looking for a hobby and loves Stardew, or a kiddo (appropriately aged considering there are needles- however while it recommends an age of 10 I was cross stitching when I was 8 so really just be your own judge on whether a kid can be responsible with this).
Perfect for the beginning cross stitcher, this handy kit contains everything you need to get started with your first cross stitch project:
- 12 skeins of embroidery thread in DMC-equivalent colors
- 25 unique Stardew Valley patterns, color-matched to the included thread
- 12 4x4 inch sheets of Aida cloth
- 2 tapestry needles
- 1 needle threader
It's the perfect complement to the Stardew Valley Cross Stitch Guide! Order them together and you'll save $4.
