This listing is for an embroidery pattern and kit. You can either stitch the design as an outline (beginner pattern) or fill in the pattern with satin stitch (designed for those of you with lots of patience.) You can choose which size of hoop you would like and also what color of fabric from the drop down menu.
Please see this tutorial if you are interested in the beginner version of the pattern to learn different linear stitches - great for lettering and line drawn patterns.
Your kit includes: - 3 skiens of DMC embroidery floss - A piece of cotton fabric to stitch - salmon or champagne (choose from drop down menu) *NEW* salmon fabric kits now come with pre-printed fabric! - One 4 inch or one 6 inch wooden hoop (choose from drop down menu). You may want to invest in a high quality wooden hoop for stitching and save the included hoop for framing your finished work. - 2 needles - A print out of the design for you to trace (for champagne fabric kits). Please see my directory of design transfer methods here. - The instructions for stitching the pattern (described below)
The embroidery pattern includes: - Stitch and Color key - Full color close up photo of stitched patterns - PDF design sized for a 4 inch and 6 inch hoop ready to print
If you are new to embroidery please find information about the basics HERE (including a stitch guide and information on hoops, fabric and floss) and additional tutorialsHERE.
You may want to invest in a high quality embroidery hoop if you have trouble maintaining tension with the included hoop. I bind my hoops with fabric or fabric tape to help, but you may find plastic, metal or high quality wood hoops easier to use. You can then use the wooden hoop included in the kit for framing your finished work.
