Item details

cozyblue embroidery kits include everything you need to create your own hand embroidered hoop.

WHALE OF A TIME is a companion piece to my sea captain (and his wife and daughter) but it looks equally awesome on it's own too.
the scallops and lines echo the sea captain design, but it's a lot less detailed so it stitches up quickly and easily.


the pattern design is pre-printed on kona cotton fabric, so there's no need for transferring or tracing.
just pop the fabric in the hoop, thread your needle, and start stitching!

these make easy and wonderful gifts. crafty friends, family, teachers, and co-workers will love them. or treat yourself, and have fun stitching something awesome.
embroidery is a great way to slow down, get cozy, and get crafty.


packaged in a printed gift box, each kit contains:

-pre-printed (in color) fabric pattern
-coordinating embroidery floss
-wooden hoop
-full color card with image on front and stitching notes on back
-my 'getting started with hand embroidery' guide and an instructional how-to for my favorite basic stitches

this listing is for the WHALE OF A TIME kit.
finished design is sized to fit nicely in a 6" hoop.

Average review
This is the first embroidery endeavor I've ever done - Liz took the time to respond to my frantic email in regard to which kit would work best for me, as I have little to no experience with embroidery. It arrived promptly, with all the necessary tools, and even included a basic introduction to embroidery. I had so much fun with it and I'm looking forward to trying other kits. Thank you so much!

Each stitch was a stitch of love for my baby. I loved the packaging and the quality of the material!

This is my first embroidery kit + I am so happy I went with this shop! Liz was super helpful when I had questions, and fast shipping. Will definitely be repurchasing from cozy blue!

My fourth kit from Liz and fabulous as always. A coworker is having a baby boy and as soon as they said they picked out a whale theme for the nursery, I showed them this kit and asked if they wanted it as their shower gift. The answer was an immediate YES, they think it's sooo cute! All of my cozyblue kits are my ideal on-the-go projects for stitching in spare moments throughout the day. Like a fidget spinner but a thousands times more fun and you have a gift at the end!!
