Item details

The blue bird on blossom branch is a hand embroidery kit in the needle painting embroidery technique.

Needle painting is also known as thread painting or painting with a needle or silk shading or long and short stitch and is a form of embroidery art.
It is the method of creating realistic hand embroidery using a single strand of embroidery thread in the needle at one time.
The stitches are worked like paint strokes so they blend beautifully to great the smooth and realistic embroidery.

The eastern blue bird on blossom branch is a good subject to learn several different aspects of the needle painting technique.

The finished embroidery measures 3 inches (7 1/2 cm) high by 3 1/2 inches (8 cm) wide.

The kit includes very detailed instructions on how to stitch the bird with step by step diagrams on how to work the stitches. There are picture guides for where to work the colours on the bird. The DMC cotton embroidery threads (floss) come sorted for you on a numbered template so you know exactly which colour to use on the embroidery. The 11 inch by 11 inch cotton fabric comes with the design drawn on so you do not have to transfer the design onto the fabric yourself. A fine needle and needle threader is also provided in the kit.

You can work the embroidery in a hoop or a stretcher bar frame. You will require either an 8 inch hoop or a 9 inch stretcher bar frame to work the embroidery in.

Please see the other listings to purchase the stretcher bar frame.

If you have any questions as you are working the embroidery you can email me at any time.
