***Due to supply issues because of COVID-19 your kit may come with some thread substitutions with Lecien Cosmo brand six-stranded embroidery floss***
The happiest ginger tabby is here! Nestled in a field of blooming daisies, this sweet little thread painted feline is sure to brighten up your day. Stitch the pattern as written, with long and short stitch, or modify it and only stitch the outlines to transform it into a beginner's pattern.
Your kit includes: - Fabric pre-stamped with the full color design (not just a line drawing). Please see the photos. The image is printed so that you will have a white border between the design and the 6-inch hoop (see photo with my hand). If you want to swap in a 5 inch hoop so the white border is cropped out please choose that option from the drop down menu. - 6 inch wooden embroidery hoop for framing. Note option to grab a 5 inch hoop instead! - 9 full skeins of DMC embroidery floss, including 2 skeins of variegated threads - 4 embroidery needles (two for full stranded work, 2 for thread painting) - The instructions for stitching the pattern (described below)
The embroidery pattern includes: - Written instructions and suggested stitch order - Stitch and color keys - Shopping list with suggested DMC embroidery floss colors - Full color close up photo of stitched pattern - PDF design sized for a 6 inch or larger 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

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.
