Cross stitch kits
Cross Stitch Kits
Certain kinds of handicraft were more popular than others during different historical periods. Crewel embroidery and Richelieu cutwork embroidery have had their ups and downs, but it is cross stitching that has consistently remained popular over time.
Cross stitch patterns are universal and can be embroidered on pillows or cushions, shirts and towels. You can also use them to create pictures, panel pictures, handbags, toys and even accessories.
We all aspire to living in a beautiful world! We want our things and clothes to please the eye and our home to be a snug place. Besides, it should also be one of a kind and have some handmade products in it. Is it difficult to do? It’s both easy and interesting.

We develop all patterns for our kits available in our online store Povitrulya on our own. The process of preparing an embroidery pattern is quite complex but at the same time, it is extremely interesting. Our designers tailor such schemes painstakingly to eliminate single or standalone stitches. They pick appropriate threads and then create the first stitched picture.
Each cross stitch kit includes:
- Mouline thread;
- Aida canvas;
- Embroidery instructions.
And this is what we would like to tell you about in detail.
Inside the kit, you will find a pattern that is easy to deal with. For the convenience of embroiderers, we provide printed embroidery patterns in color. This way, it will be easy for you to mark what progress you have made.
Each kit comes with mouline thread manufactured either by the Kirov textile factory (St. Petersburg, Russia), or Peri (Turkey) made of Egyptian long-staple cotton. Information on threads that come with our kits can be found in the kit description on Povitrulya online store and also on the back side of the label. All threads are originally tied to the organizer so that you don’t have to do it yourself.
Depending on the kind of canvas that comes with the kit – thin or thick – the needle also comes with its corresponding size. For thin canvas we use fine needles, for thick one — thicker needles. But one way or another, the needle has a blunt pointed tip so that it does not split the material of the fabric. It should also allow a smooth go of the thread inside the needle eye so that the thread can be pulled in several takes. If a kits is supplied with elements of bead embroidery, then an appropriate bead needle comes with it too.
Canvas is the main component of a cross stitch kit. Povitrulya completes its kits with Aida canvas 14 white, Aida canvas 14 black, and Aida canvas 16 white. The dense finished fabric tissue is the perfect match for cross stitching as it does not shrink while being embroiderd on. It also keeps its shape even after washing and ironing.
You get embroidery instructions in each kit. If you want to learn more about decorative stitching, beadwork and embroidery care, this information is available in our articles:
