Dung Beetles Mini Cushion Cross Stitch Kit


The industrious Dung Beetle is honoured here with its very own mini cushion! The Ancient Egyptians admired these little creatures, even portraying them in jewelled amulets which have been re-created in this design, as they served such an important purpose of removing the piles of you-know-what, else we would be up to our necks in it by now!  Also featured are the Beetles rolling a ball of dung, plus some baby Beetles burrowing their way out of the dung balls they were hatched in.  An unusual topic for a cross stitch design, yes, but it's sure to be a conversation piece in any home.

This mini cushion cross stitch kit includes: 14HPI white aida fabric, ready-sorted DMC Stranded Cotton threads on a card sorter, needle, backing fabric, b&w symbol chart and instructions (cushion filler not included).

Design size: 5¾" (14.7cm) square.

Only whole cross stitch is required to stitch this design (so no fractionals or backstitch needed).
