What happens when you take phosphorescent technology and apply it to embroidery? Only Glow in the Dark Cross Stitch, that’s what! Wow! We were so excited by this craft innovation that we invited Jamie Chalmers – aka Mr X Stitch – into our studio to show us more…
Watch Jamie talk about glow in the dark cross stitch in our fun YouTube video! He reveals why this revolutionary new idea is exciting to him, as a pioneer of contemporary needlework, and what different applications this innovative new product can bring.
Here are some of our favourite ideas for using glow in the dark cross stitch threads and other craft materials.
This glow in the dark cross stitch rocket design by Bobo Stitch would surely make any little boy’s year. Nursery decorating just got a whole lot more exciting!
Not cross stitch, but these constellation embroidery designs by Minature Rhino stitched in glow in the dark thread are just perfection! For extra twinkle, you could even stitch these in glow in the dark pearl treasure braid so that the stars truly shine!
As shown in the video, glow in the dark fabric pens offer a great quick way to bring some luminescence to your life. We love this corset spotted on Brit+Co which has been created solely with fabric paint pens, but imagine the possibilities if you combined these with some embroidered elements using glow in the dark blending filaments too?
