After redesigning my beginner guide with fun stitchy illustrations I decided to repurpose those drawings as a fun little embroidery pattern. Also, I really wanted a project to play with my favorite jewel toned variegated flosses from Lecien Cosmo! This pattern uses just a handfull of stitches (six to be exact) and is suitable for beginners.
Your kit includes: - Blue cotton fabric printed with the design - a 6 inch embroidery hoop - embroidery needles - Four full skeins of Lecien's Seasons variegated cotton embroidery floss - A small length of black six stranded embroidery floss - The directions for stitching the pattern as pictured
The directions (two files) will be available to you for download after your purchase.
The simple embroidery pattern includes:
- Stitch and Color key - a shopping list with suggested variegated floss colors from Lecien's Seasons collection. You may want to purchase the kit if you want to use the exact colors I did. But, I believe any colors will still make this pattern stitch up cute! - Full color photo of stitched pattern - PDF design sized for a 6 inch hoop ready to print - shrink or enlarge to meet your needs
The beginner guide includes: - A supplies list with suggested products (hoops, needles, fabric, etc) based off of my experience - Helpful tips and tricks for transferring design, getting started, and finishing your project - Diagrams of stitches
This document is also available on my website HERE and includes videos for most stitches.
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.
