If you like making x's with needle and thread, then you might just like saying xoxo this year with a pair of cross-stitched pillows. This DIY kit is available from the creative geniuses at Clothkits, a UK company that is known for making pre-stamped fabric that you cut out and sew together to make adorable clothes. Most Brits are familiar with Clothkits from the dresses their mums made for them when they were kids, but I only discovered them about a year ago when I just had to buy myself some of their skirt kits:
The skirts were fun and easy to make, the only drawback being that the Clothkits themselves are a bit pricey. But from now until February 14th, they are offering 25% off many of their items that have a romantic feel, including the Rob Ryan designed "Hold Me" papercut design skirt shown above right, and the Kiss and Hug pillow kits at the top of this post. Just enter code iloveyou to get the discount. Then get ready to have some crafty fun.
