Happiness is cross stitching blog

Cross stitched Toblerone gift set.

Edited and updated 12 May 2020
Cross stitched gift set featuring a Toblerone shaped needle case with matching mattress pincushion and pillow with angel cross stitched in pink with rose details.
The cross stitched Toblerone gift set is finally finished and has been sent to Yana in Russia. I had actually lost all hope of it ever getting there, in fact, I had made another one and was ready to post it next week!
The cross stitched Toblerone tutorial can be found on my finishing instructions blog here I also used some of the fabrics I bought from Shabby Fabrics in America.
The cherub pattern was a free pattern from Arianne Pierre, I could not find the link to it, however, a nice blogging friend sent me the pattern.
For the rose detail on the Toblerone, I used part of a pattern from the Gazette 94 blog here, just scroll down and you will see the roses as part of this large sampler.
I have also made another Toblerone gift set, you can see it in this post here
The polymer clay rose pins, buttons, and thread holder was handmade from Fimo clay and glazed with varnish to give a shiny finish.
If you wish to know how to make the roses just type in polymer clay roses on YouTube and you will see a video showing how to make them.
I used DMC floss for the cross stitch.
More pictures below.

Cross stitched Toblerone gift set includes a pillow and a mattress pincushion.
I have just sent another exchnage to Hazel from Quietly Stitching blog here , I will show pictures in my next post.
Happy stitching everyone and thankyou for your visit.
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    What a beautiful set. The fabrics you used are so very pretty.
    I'm so happy to hear that the package finally turned up. It would have been tragic for something so lovely to have been lost in the mail.

    This is fantastic news :>) I bet you could not believe it when it finally made it safely to its destination. And, my goodness, is it beautiful. Stunning, more like :>)
    I love the toblerone, it's so clever and the pins are beautiful. The little cherub pillow and the mattress are wonderful and the handmade accessories make it so special and one of a kind.
    I see you are putting your shabby chic fabrics to very good use.
