A Lion fell in love with a beautiful maiden and proposed marriage. The maiden’s parents did not know what to say. They did not want to give their daughter to the Lion, yet they did not wish to enrage the King of Beasts.

At last the father said:

“We feel highly honored by your Majesty’s proposal, but our daughter is a tender young girl, and we fear that in the heat of love you might possibly do her injury. Might I venture to suggest that your Majesty should have your claws removed, and your teeth extracted; then we would consider your proposal again.”

The Lion was so much in love that he had his claws trimmed and his big teeth taken out.

But, when he again came to the parents of the young girl they simply laughed at him.

Love tames the wildest

This kit is suitable for beginners.

You will use three core embroidery stitches: straight stitch, chain stitch and split stitch.

All you need is a pair of scissors, everything else is included in the box:

- The design printed on cotton twill

- A detailed guide on the embroidery stitches

- An easy to follow colour coded stitching plan

- All the thread you need on colour coded bobbins

- Several needles

- A tote bag to enable you to easily transport your kit

The finished design will measure approx 7" x 10" (18 cm x 27 cm) and fit in an A4 frame. We expect it'll take 1 months to stitch (depending on how addicted you get to sewing of course!). We recommend stretching and mounting the finished piece prior to framing.

We have created a video guiding you through all the key stitching areas to accompany The Lion in Love kit. You will also find guides on each type of stitch used in the how to guides
