If you are a beginner or have girls that are wanting to start needlework, stamped cross-stitch is the way to go. I started when I was my oldest daughter’s age of 9. Stamped is great for kids and beginners since it is easy and takes less time than most counted cross-stitching patterns. There are several kits that you can buy. Some examples of stamped cross-stitch kits are baby bibs, pillowcases, hand towels.
Another good thing about the stamped cross-stitching is that once you are done and if any ink is still showing on the pattern, it can easily be washed clear of the fabric. When you are doing stamped cross-stitching, the patterns are normally made up of the simple stitches, such as standard x stitch and straight stitch.
A lot of people use Stamped Cross-stitches to make gifts for weddings, baby showers, etc. I have done several baby bibs when I was doing stamped cross-stitch and gave them away as gifts. I am hoping that when my daughter wants to learn stamped cross-stitch, that she will enjoy it as much as I did.
