We made Autumn Cross Stitch Bookmark {Review}


Baker Ross sell a wide selection of seasonal arts and crafts for children of all ages. We were lucky enough to be sent these really lovely Autumnal Cross Stitch Book marks.

Ellie could not wait to get stuck into these - She absolutley loves being creative. Well, all three of my children do but my boys were busy with there friends so Ellie and I thought we'd have some mummy daughter time.

Making Autumnal book marks

Ellie hasn't really done much cross stitching before so she needed a little help from me to get her started off. Once she had got the hang of it there was no stopping her!

Ellie made a couple of mistakes but I told her it doesn't matter. It's a really good try for her first time at cross stitching book marks! You can however, easily rectify any mistakes by threading the yarn back through the holes and re-doing each stitch.

Autumnal bookmarks for kids

Ellie chose to do the stitching first and then coloured in the picture on the bookmarks using some Fibre Tip Pens, which can also be purchased from Baker Ross. Ellie was all "I love the little animals and the snails, they are very cute!" We talked about where the hedgehogs might live and what kind of foods they might eat. Ellie really is a true animal lover and she loves learning about animals. "I hope we have another hedgehog visit our garden" She told me. Her bookmarks have inspired us to look out for the big chubby hedgehog that often visits us in the evening.

Ellie made a couple of bookmarks which took her about an hour in total and she was totally loving every second. She really enjoyed making these and once she had got the hang of cross stitching she really enjoyed it. This is a perfect way for kids to learn how to cross stitch as well as be creative!

Autumn Cross Stitch Bookmark Kits review

"I think I'm going to use my hedgehog bookmark in my school book. I can't wait to show my friends!" Ellie told me, followed by "And the snail one I'll keep at home in my bedtime book" Bless her.

Autumn bookmark

She was so proud of herself when she had finished these book marks. I am so proud of her for doing her very best and being creative.
Overall Ellie really enjoyed these bookmarks, I really liked helping her make them and teaching her to cross stitch. It was great fun! A lovely way to spend an evening. They're so worth the money. I also feel they'd make a perfect gift for any child who enjoys being creative. Do head over to the Baker Ross website and have a browse of the Autumn arts & craft kits.
