Bookish Cross Stitch - Plastic Little Covers

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of cross stitch, one of my favourite hobbies at the weekend is to listen to a good audio book and do some cross stitch, it's so relaxing I really recommend it! Cross stitch is actually really easy to pick up and always makes for cute gifts so I've decided to do a small series on different cross stitch designers who offer kits or patterns that have bookish themed products starting with Plastic Little Covers.

I've actually stitched quite a few of Plastic Little Covers patterns, but the products I wanted to feature today are her bookmark kits. As you can see I've made a couple already and actually gifted the kits a few times to friends.

Everything you need to stitch a bookmark is included in the including the fabric, needle, all threads, backing fabric, finishing thread and the pattern with instructions on how to cross stitch for beinners plus how to finish off the bookmark. There are quite a few different designs to choose from as well and I love them all. Overall I think this took me around three hours whilst listening to Circe and I really loved stitching it. 

Besides the cross stitch kits, as I mentioned Plastic Little Covers has some amazing bookish themed patterns that come in PDF format. These are a little bit more complicated as they are larger in size and require you to buy the threads and cross stitch fabric (aida) yourself, but if you are already a stitcher I definitely recommend these patterns as I've had great fun stitching them, plus they look cute AF once done. Here are a couple of my favourite:

The bookmark kits range in price from £6.50 to £8 and the PDF patterns start at just 2.40, all available from her Etsy store! What do you think, would you stitch one of these? Any cross stitchers here already? I also totally love listening to audi dramas and if you are looking for some good ones to check out I have just the blog post for you: I Heart Audio Dramas  What a great little plug that was!
