Anchor Stitch Kit - A Detailed Look
In my previous post, I had written about writing a detailed post about Anchor Stitch Kit. So here is it.
Anchor Stitch Kits basically comes in different sizes and you can choose your kit based on your interest. Remember the complexity usually increases with size. Since this was my first attempt at stitch kits ( Actually it is my second attempt. I had completed 20% of a bigger one before abandoning it almost 5 years ago) , I decided to pick the smallest size (14cm x 16 cm). And I am very eager to complete it and find it adorning my bedroom wall as soon as possible; of course in a double frame :)
I don't have a picture of the set as I got it from the store. So let us get into the things that are there inside the kit. The most important is the mesh on which the design has been drawn in a light orange color.
Then there is the tapestry needle that is used to put long stitches. Only long stitches are used for the entire design. The needle hole is pretty big so that almost everyone can thread them easily. The design is created by using skeins made of 6 strands of thread twisted to make a single strand. This gives the design the required amount of filling.
The picture of the completed long stitch is the best item for reference in this kit. I think this gives everyone a pretty good picture of how the end product should look like in the design.
Anchor Stitch Kits are awesome for time pass and it will give a great sense of satisfaction once completed and framed. Imagine telling all your visitors that the framed art work on your wall is your own creation !
Or maybe you can gift one of the small ones as a gift to small girls. I am sure they will love it :)
