In Waldorf education cross-stitch is integral to the 4th grade handwork curriculum. The children (both boys and girls) create their own symmetrical designs then transfer them to graph paper with each block of the grid representing a square on the heavy aida cloth fabric. The project can then stitched with Embroidery Floss using Gold Eye Sewing Needles. Make bookmarks, pincushions, pencil cases, pouches and more. Great for improving fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
6 count means 6 holes per inch. The ideal size aida cloth for the young child!
Ideas abound on our Pinterest Cross Stitch Board.
