Gift Ideas--Needlework Kits

Happy Monday! Today is my mother's birthday and although I have already taken care of her birthday present, I did consider some needlework kits. Not only to stitch up and give the finished item as a gift, but the kit itself would make a great gift. Here are some of those fantastic kits I found on Etsy.

Tiny Square Needlepoint Kit from Ornaw
I love this colorful kit to make three ornaments, all in different designs. The kit contains all the materials and instructions needed. You can make three gifts from just one kit!

Mackintosh Rose Pillow Embroidery Kit from paintbythread
I am a huge fan of Arts & Crafts style, so I was very excited to find paintbythread. The shop contains lovely finished hand-embroidered textiles (pillows and table runners) as well as kits, all in the wonderful Arts & Crafts style. I was especially thrilled to find this pillow kit with a classic design inspired by one of my favorite architects/designers Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Highland Bouquet Eyeglasses Case Kit from thistledew4u
Thistle Dew for You has some of the most amazing beaded embroidery pieces I have ever seen. Seriously stunning. But what brought me to the shop was this very pretty eyeglass case kit. Not quite as grand as the beadwork, but nonetheless, either as a kit or a finished case, this would make a great gift!

Happy Stitching!
