This embroidery kit will teach you the core embroidery stitches: straight stitch, satin stitch, chain stitch and french knots.
If you are new to embroidery, we have created a detailed video to accompany each figure and walk you through each step of the way. Therefore even if you have never stitched before, you will be able to create this artwork. French knots can feel tricky the first time, therefore we have provided plenty of spare thread so you can practice these on another piece of fabric also.
These kits are slightly more complicated than The Camels due to the french knots, but still very much accessible to a beginner!
The kit contains:
- The design printed on high quality natural linen
- A detailed instruction booklet
- A colour coded guide of which stitches to use where
- A couple of embroidery needles
- All the thread you need to complete the design and some extra for practicing stitches
We highly recommend you use a 7" embroidery hoop to help you stitch, the kit doesn't include one. Therefore if you don't already have one then you can add this on as an option.
Each project will take 8 to 10 hours to complete and will measure 12cm by 18cm. We recommend framing in an A4 frame with a mount. We sell decoratively painted frames and mounting kits to compliment each design. You can see these in the framing section of the website.
