The Awesocrafts Blue Willow Cross Stitch Kit is supposed to be “perfect for all ages, beginners, kids, adults or advanced stitchers.” I ordered it, so I’ll let you know. I used to cross stitch, but it has been many years.

The pattern comes printed on the fabric. The details say 51×51 cm/20.1×20.1 inches in one place and 14 CT, 40×40 cm/15.7×15.7 inches in another place. So… is the fabric 20″ square and the design is 16″ square? When it gets here, I’ll let you know.

Heritage Crafts makes a very faithful version of the Blue Willow story in a cross stitch. It has everything, the pagoda, bridge, island, birds, boat… willow tree of course.

The only information given on this kit is that it is returnable. But a reviewer says it comes with the 14-count aida fabric and the floss. She says the kit is really well-laid out and the stitch diagrams are particularly nice. Another reviewer says the colors are good. It results in a 11 1/2″ piece.


If you know what you are doing, you can order just the chart and instructions. It uses only two colors of floss.
