We’ve stitched ours on to beautifully hand-dyed evenweave fabric from Polstitches Designs. The evenweave creates a soft elegant finish allowing the design to stand out. Jo Critchley dyes all her Polstitches fabrics herself, so each one is slightly different and totally unique!

If you’re new to cross stitch, you’ll be sure to fly through this pattern as it’s stitched entirely with only black thread – creating the detailed silhouettes and intricate decorative border. Once your stitching is complete, add coordinating backing fabric, fill with stuffing and add a black ribbon to hang these designs around your home in true spooktacular style!
