You will need only scissors to complete this project.
I teach sewing to kids in Brooklyn and one of their favorite projects each semester is embroidery. It allows them the time to relax, and has a meditative feel to it. I wanted to make something for them that their parents didn't have to think about going to the store and getting all the right materials before starting a project. So they could continue what they learn in class at home. These kits allow for anyone (even a complete beginner) to start sewing with ease.
You can hang the embroidery in the hoop as is, make a pillow with it, or put it in a beautiful frame. The hoop can be used over and over to make new embroideries that you design!
