"Mind The Gap" draught excluder
To keep the cold at bay I have made a funky colourful draught excluder stitched on one side with some playful typography “Mind The Gap” and backed in denim. This cross stitch uses worsted wool, half stitch and a large holed canvas so is quicker than normal cross stitch.
