Celebrate summer with this gorgeous design featuring my favorite tropical flowers on a wreath of tropical plant leaves.
This hand embroidery kit is available in two options: 1. Double hoop style. Your kit includes 2 hoops (9 inch, 4 inch) and a light, dusty green linen fabric. You must transfer the design yourself. This style is included in the photographs. 2. Regular hoop style. Your kit includes 1 hoop (9 inch) and green cotton fabric pre-stamped with the design. This fabric is not stretchy enough to be pulled into the double hoop set up.
All kits also include:
19 full skeins of DMC embroidery floss
2 embroidery needles

The embroidery pattern includes: - Stitch keys, stitch direction keys, and color keys (with suggested DMC colors) for all elements of the design - Full color close up photos of stitched pattern - PDF design sized for a 9 inch hoop ready to print - Double hoop assembly guide

There is a short video tutorial currently (6/1/18) available for this pattern demonstrating how to stitch the plumeria flowers using long and short stitch. The Anemones and Succulents video tutorial is also a great resource for long and short stitch direction. Here you can find my videos: YouTube Channel
