This kit is perfect for beginners new to hand embroidery! The design features five classic hand embroidery stitches and you can stitch along with me on YouTube as I stitch the Floral Flourish design on camera. I demonstrate satin stitch, fishbone stitch, straight stitches, back stitch and French knots as they are utilized in the pattern. I created this design for beginners and for those of you looking for a simple project to relax with. There are only five colors of floss to manage and the floral pattern repeats three times. Stitch all three motifs the same or try new techniques as you make your way around the hoop.
This kit is available in two colorways. One features reds and pinks on taupe fabric and the other comes with oranges and yellows on green fabric. Please select which version you would like from the drop down menu.
Your kit includes:
Cotton fabric, printed with the design in thin black lines. These guidelines are permanent.
One 5 inch hand embroidery hoop
Hand embroidery needles
5 skeins of cotton hand embroidery floss. Your kit will come with a mix of DMC and Cosmo brand six-stranded floss.

My kits do not include hand embroidery scissors but I do offer aselection. 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.
