Cross Stitcher issue 253 is out this week.. and my column this month is all about SUPERSIZE TREATS… (with a little nod to my new SUPERSIZE STITCHING BOOK)
There is something quintessentially British about a cup of tea and a biscuit. I have a lot of love for nostalgic munchies.. and it appears that lots of designers seem to feel the same, making supersize versions of our favourite teatime treats.
Lucy Sparrow is an artist who creates supersize felt stitched pieces – which she calls “feltism” she has created all sorts of things but I especially love her Bourbon Biscuit.
One of my very favourite nibbles are Tunnocks Teacakes and I adore this oversized screen printed cushion by Nikki Williams, who has also done a Caramel Bar… yum!
You can create your own sweet stitching using one of the cute mini biscuit patterns from The Making Spot .. or you could stitch up one of my Giant British Biscuit Collection, like this Custard Cream Kit.
Also in this issue is an interview with the delectable Mr X Stitch Jamie Chalmers … with his blokes view on stitching crafts.
Happy Stitching JP x
