Krista says - My "BitKits" feature smaller versions of my historically-inspired designs with everything you need--specialty fabric imported from Greece, DMC floss, full color chart, and a John James size 24 tapestry needle. The fabric is conveniently serged on the raw edges so you just open up the kit and start stitching! Great for beginners or those looking for a small and quick project, these little table mats look charming on a desk, bookshelf or anywhere you want a little bit of textile love!
Arrows and circles—classic design motifs used throughout antiquity in textiles, rugs, pottery, and stone carving--combine to create a striking and intricate compass design. Each compass is then alternated in a “half drop” arrangement common to many historic textiles. This compelling all over design is worked in a restrained color palette of black, terra cotta, and golden olive and makes a beautiful small mat that will lend a little bit of history to any décor!
