Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
And stood awhile in thought.
This beginners embroidery kit depicts the third act of The Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. The kit will introduce you to two different embroidery stitches: satin stitch and chain stitch. With large areas to fill and simple shapes, the kit is designed to be accessible to anyone completely new to stitching. In addition we also have a video in the How To section of the website which will guide you through getting started and each step.
The kits contains the following:
- The design on organic calico
- Plenty of DMC embroidery thread
- A couple of embroidery needles
- A storybook telling the tale of The Jabberwocky and a guide for how to stitch the artwork
- A 5” embroidery hoop and a guide on how to use it,
The finished piece measures 18cm x 18cm and it will take 8-10 hours for you to stitch it. All you need is a pair of sewing scissors.
You can buy this kit on its own for £30 or with a frame and mounting materials for £55. The frame is unpainted (as shown in the image) and therefore designed for you to be able to paint in colours you prefer. Any colours work with these designs so create something unique to you. You can use any type of paint to paint the frame, or take a look at our Sewing Supplies Shop where we also sell small tins of eggshell paints in our favourite colours! We do not sell any painted frames to go with this kit.
