A gift idea for Christmas…

Iphone

I have a confession to make. I am the kind of person who finds a fantastic gift idea and buys them for everyone on my present list. This cross stitch iphone cover is one such product that will grace the Christmas stockings of many of my friends and family. It is a small kit that includes three thread colours and a needle that can be used to sew a customised design on the phone cover. Pictured below is an example of a cover made by a member of staff. Wish I had an iphone… then I could self gift! If you want to check them out they are available online via the following link:
