You might think doing cross stitch, a form of tapestry, is a little ‘old fashioned’, however, it is actually a very well known ‘pastime’ which can help relax the mind and bring joy to your day! Here’s what Animal Magic has in store for you.

We have designed and created ‘easy to work’ cross stitch kits made to complement the animals and birds found in our wooden puzzles and activity books. Everything you need is provided in the cross stitch kit - the tapestry hoop, the aida cloth, needle, threads and easy to follow instructions. As each individual cross stitch is added to the aida cloth, watch the animal or bird take shape – you will be so pleased when you pop in the final stitch.

Take time out to enjoy this relaxing craft while sitting out in the fresh air, or listening to your favourite music – if you haven’t yet tried it, you’ll be so surprised just how relaxing it is to do. These simple kits are also a wonderful way to teach a child or grandchild how to do cross stitch and complete a project while spending some precious quality time together.

We really do think an “Australian Made gift” makes all the difference when it comes to buying something worth having. Animal Magic Australia stands by its quality certification (Registration Bbr 12303) and we are very proud to display the very well known “green kangaroo” on all our products.

Australian Made stands for ‘quality’ and ‘quality handmade gifts’ is what we are all about! We lovingly assemble and package our cross stitch kits in our home-based workshop with each one carefully checked for quality before it’s ready for sale.


There are a number of ways you can show off your beautiful cross stitch samples. You could frame a set of three or four and display them on the wall of your child’s bedroom – something handmade is always a wonderful keepsake to treasure.

You could also join the completed cross stitch samples into a beautiful throw rug or quilt, even a set of lovely pillows for a bedroom or playroom. Or, even better, you could sew each animal into a soft play children’s book. Whatever you do to make your cross stitch samples shine, they will always be treasured by the person you made them for.
