These wooden cross stitch threading shapes are a great way for little ones (and adults!) to try out cross stitch for the first time.
The beautiful wooden bases can be coloured, painted or left natural and decorated with colourful yarn and beads to inspire your little ones creativity and develop their needle craft skills.
Each pack contains six wooden cross stitch shapes, one of each shape pictured: square (44 x 44mm), rectangle (39 x 58mm), scalloped circle (58mm diameter), oval (40 x 58mm), teardrop (40 x 58mm), and heart (50 x 58mm). Each threading hole is 2mm and fits a standard embroidery needle. All shapes include an additional hole to allow them to be threaded up as pendants.
We like to dye light coloured wool and thread with natural eco paints first and use this to create our cross stitch pattern
The decorated shapes can be turned into keyrings, necklace pendants, bookmarks, ornaments or gift tags
Chenille sticks can be threaded through the holes
The wooden threading shapes come in a compostable cornstarch cellophane bag which can be disposed of in the green organics bin or worm farm.
The Eco Crayons difference: no paraffin, no palm oil, no beeswax, no mined micas or clays, no synthetic colours, handmade in Australia and 100% home compostable
