Have you always wanted to learn how to stitch? A kit is a great way to explore a new hobby without a big up-front investment, plus it includes everything you need to complete a project.
Since I’m on the go a lot in the summer, it’s always official kit season for me. Here are some embroidery and cross stitch projects that both beginners and experienced stitchers will enjoy.
Neon Mandala Embroidery Project Kit
You’ll learn several types of stitches as you complete this project. This bold, colorful design is quick and easy to make. The kit contains everything you need to sew and frame a mandala picture. I rate this kit 5 out of 5 stars.
Sugar Skull Mini Counted Cross Stitch Kit
This unique, elaborate design takes plenty of time to stitch up. Although the kit has good directions, it doesn’t have enough supplies in it. I ran out of every color before I could complete the sugar skull. It’s not always easy to find exact matches for embroidery floss colors. For that reason, I give this kit 3.5 out of 5 stars.
If you make this project, be sure to purchase some DMC six-stand embroidery floss in black, #945, and #3770. These shades are close matches for completing the neutral-colored areas of the skull. The DMC Variegated Embroidery Floss Pack has good matches for the bright colors in the pattern.
