|Our military designs always go down a storm at stitching shows, so I thought it was about time we had a bit of a feature for them in our newsletter. As you |
all know, we like to encourage people to 'stitch something a bit different', and our military designs are definitely different to the norm.
Let's start with a blast from the past, a very popular plane, the Lancaster bomber. This design uses 17 DMC colours and the finished stitching measures 14.3"
by 10.1", when stitched on 14 count aida. The kit costs £29.95 and can be seen at http://www.stitchtastic.com/product/lancaster-bomber-cross-stitch-kit.aspx.
Next, a little more up to date aircraft which is just disappearing from our armed forces, so there's never been a better time to immortalise it in stitch.
The Harrier Jump Jet kit costs £29.95 and measures 14.3" by 7.8", using 15 DMC colours. Have a look at http://www.stitchtastic.com/product/harrier-jump-jet-cross-stitch-kit.aspx.
Let's come back down to earth with our Panther Tank stitch. It's a big colourful design, using 21 DMC colours. It measures 14.3" by 9.1" when stitched and
will impress any tank enthusiast. For more information visit http://www.stitchtastic.com/product/panther-tank-cross-stitch-kit.aspx.
Another great aircraft design to finish with, our very popular Spitfire design. What makes this design unique is that it injects an element of fun into a
very iconic plane. The finished stitching measures 14.3" by 10" and uses 16 DMC colours, have a look at http://www.stitchtastic.com/product/spitfire-
A colourful blast from the past!
Harrier Jump Jet - will be sadly missed.
Military Ground Vehicle - can't be beaten.
Brand New Red Arrows
|This month we're delighted to add to our forces range as we're launching our new Red Arrows design. Featuring one of their iconic planes racing along through |
the skies, this is a very colourful design, using 27 rich DMC colours. It's an easy stitch though as a lot of the work is in blocks, creating a superb
The finished stitching measures 14.7" by 9" and would be a great tribute to any aerobatic pilot, or just for a fan! Have a look at
Our brilliantly colourful and brand new Red Arrows design.
Fancy a personalised number plate?
OK, this is a slightly cheaper way to get your own personalised number plate and I'm afraid you can't actually use it on your car, but after last month's
Patrick's personalised cross stitch design.
Next month we'll appeal to all those cross stitch farmers out there with our range of tractor designs.
See you then!
