Hello again, stitchy friends! I’m back with another finish. (I had a few website issues that prevented me from uploading images, hence the delay in posting.) This time it is the cover kit from a UK cross stitch magazine. (I’ll be darned if I can remember which one, or even find the issue right now.) Edit: They are from World of Cross Stitching, issue 239. Thanks Jo!

Cross Stitch Gift Tag

Normally, I read this particular magazine through Zinio, which means I don’t get the cover kits. (One of the biggest drawbacks with digital versions of magazines in my opinion.) But, I was really taken by these lovely tags, so I went out and hunted down a copy of the magazine. Given the that nearest bookstore now only carries Just Cross Stitch, and the nearest drug store no longer carries any craft magazines, it was a bit difficult to find. I had to resort to Wal-Mart.

The kit had five designs but six tags, and I was able to eke out just enough thread to stitch the bird design twice. I think they all turned out lovely, and I’m very thankful the finishing was super simple this time. All I needed to do was cut out the designs, pop out the tags, and glue the designs to the tags. The bakers twine was also included in the kit.

I’m not sure what I will end up using them for, but for now I’m just very happy with how they turned out.

If you happen to know which magazine and which issue this kit came from, please let me know. I’ll update this post once I figure it out, or once someone tells me. 😉
