Happy Easter 2013 Gift Tag

We all like adding a little extra to a gift, so for this Easter, cross stitch a little tag. Perfect if you are a beginner or want a super quick project.

Cross stitching gives a heirloom quality to your work, a technique that is past down through the generation and one of my many lady-like crafts I love to blog about!

You will need just the basics, some 14 count aida fabric, the four colours of threads, a cross stitch needle and scissors and a small hoop (optional). All available from your local haberdashery store.

Make sure that your stitches all go in the same direction and you will your design grown before your eyes!

Once you have stitched all your full stitches, you can then use 1 strand of thread and use a back stitch stitch and draw in the flower petals.
