Temperature Potion cross stitch kit

Temperature Potion cross stitch kit


The Potion Temperature cross stitch kit contain the charts and full instructions to cross stitch this piece in colours representing the maximum daily temperatures in your part of the world, through an entire year. The images show an example potion based on temperatures in Sussex, UK 2022 - the colour distribution in your piece will be different according to the temperatures in your area, so every potion bottle stitched will be completely unique depending on the maximum temperatures in the location and year of your choice!

The bottom of the potion bottle is for January and you work your way up the bottle to reach December. Once completed you can then add personalisation to the label if you wish by backstitching either a place name or the year.

It is a great way to preserve the memory of a special year!

Two separate versions are available, for leap years and non-leap years, so you can easily stitch for any year. (just choose from the options below which one you would like!)

You can also choose either the full kit option or the printed pattern option.

The printed pattern option (please note this is not digital):

If you don't live in a major populated area you might want to check that your area is covered by temperature websites, unless you are recording temperatures yourself. I recommend looking at:
On AccuWeather, if you search for your location and click on “monthly”, it will give you temperatures for all the months of the current year and the year before. In the settings (top right of the website) you can change between Fahrenheit and Celsius. If you want to go further back than the previous year, perhaps to commemorate a special year, both Time and Date and Weather Underground give temperatures going much further back. Time and Date allows you to choose Fahrenheit or Celsius.


Aida colour (aida is only included in the kit)
