I was cruising around Etsy looking for a locket pendant for a project I have in mind when I saw these neat little cross stitch pendants in my results. Now these things weren’t what I was looking for, but the second I saw them, my prior search was abandoned. Do I still need a pendant? Well, yeah but that’s just too darn bad for now.

The shop is Red Gate Stitchery and there are tons and tons of cute little cross stitched jewelry kits. My favorites are the little wooden kits but there are also leather cuffs and some traditional cross stitch projects.

In fact, I checked my mail before heading to a doctor’s appointment that is notorious for keeping me in the waiting room for eons. I was in said waiting room sifting through my mail and listening to an irritating man who had to read every question on his patient survey out loud, very loudly and try to make a funny joke about it. For example “Sex? Yes please! Haw Haw Haw!” Normally I’m a really patient person, but this dude was driving me batty. I could literally feel myself going red!

Then I found my package from Red Gate Stitchery and I honestly opened it up right then and there and started stitching and just kind of got lost in it. Sorry dude, you previously captive audience is now busy.

The only thing I was concerned about was that they’re little and seemed like I’d just whip right through the project but it did take me some time. It’s really, really easy and the end results are just gorgeous.

So this is what you get when you order a kit from Red Gate Stitchery – it’s in a super cute little package and the pattern is printed on the back. This set would make a perfectly wonderful gift, wouldn’t it?

You get everything you need in one super cute little package including the pendant itself, pattern, floss, needle and chain… basically everything you need except a pair of scissors. The wooden kits are made of eco-friendly bamboo, but there are also some nifty acrylic sets.

The needle you get is really thin, which is awesome. When I was working up my first kit, a nameless but sneaky little creature must have walked off with my threaded needle. I used one of my own from my stash and it was far too thick to work easily. Whether you’re an expert stitcher or if you’re new, this little project is just plain fun.

And there is my finished pendant! Nifty, huh? I followed the pattern to a T and I love it.

Plus, it’s a good size. Not too big, not too small. You can get the exact kit here.

And here is my key chain fob that I stitched up from this kit. I used the green floss included in the kit, but chose from my own stash to match my key chain my nephew made for me.

There are quite a few key fob patterns to choose from, depending on your tastes.

I absolutely love this pendant available here.

And this leather cuff, found here, is genius, isn’t it?

So if you haven’t already, head on over and check out Susan’s shop. Everything is really cute and very reasonably priced, plus, I have a go to for a quick gift idea! Happy Friday!
