Embroidery has to be one of the most relaxing and therapeutic past-times. These little projects will give you hours of pleasure, both in the process of making and the time you subsequently spend admiring and enjoying your artwork!
This kit makes my ‘Dendelion’ wildflower picture - the finished embroidery measures project 5 x 7 ½ inches and looks lovely mounted in an A3 picture frame.
With the embroidery template pre-printed onto adhesive soluble fleece, there is no tricky process required to transfer the design. Simply peel off the backing, stick onto the fabric and begin stitching! Once the stitching is complete, rinse in luke warm water and the pre-printed sticker dissolves away very easily, leaving just the stitches on the fabric.
As well as the water soluble embroidery template, the line drawing of the embroidery is also included in the pattern to enable you to use other transfer methods and reuse the embroidery design for personal use. Why not create variations using variegated threads, embroidery silks and tapestry wools? Or try using it as the basis for an appliqué pattern and embellish the details with my free machine drawing technique.
The kit includes high quality materials: o 12 x 10 inches linen/rayon fabric for embroidery background o 4 skeins of Anchor six stranded mouliné 100% cotton embroidery thread o 1 size 5 John James embroidery needle o Full colour detailed A3 instruction sheet (250gsm card), with full size colour stitching chart o Includes one intricate embroidery template pre-printed onto adhesive soluble fleece replicating every detail in my original drawing
Please note, the kit does NOT include the following, which you will need to complete the project: o An embroidery hoop o Mount board and frame if displaying as a picture, but you can of course add it into a cushion or a quilt or even stitch it to your artisan apron!
