Fall is here! I am so excited to present the final hoop in the four seasons set. This pattern includes thread painted flowers, however, if you'd like to simplify the designs you can follow along with the satin stitch modifications included in the directions. In addition, this pattern includes a bonus pattern featuring the wreath elements rearranged in a floral spray.
Your kit includes:
18 skeins of DMC embroidery floss
A piece of linen blend fabric. YOU WILL NEED TO TRANSFER THE DESIGN YOURSELF.
One 9 inch natural wooden hoop
One 4 inch natural wooden hoop
2 embroidery needles
A print out of the design for you to trace
The instructions for stitching the pattern (described below)
OPTION: If you prefer to stitch and frame the design in a regular hoop please select that option from the drop down menu. Your kit will include one 9 inch hoop (no 4 inch hoop) plus khaki colored cotton fabric with the design pre-stamped.
Plus, you will receive a link to view a series of videos of this pattern being assembled and stitched on YouTube. Starting with the same supplies in the kit I will show you how I stretch the fabric, trace the design and finish the hoop. A number of unique stitches are included in the video, but if you need a refresher on any of the "standard" stitches you can refer to my Beginner Video Tutorial HERE.
The embroidery pattern includes: - Stitch and Color key (with suggested DMC colors) - Full color close up photo of the stitched pattern - PDF design sized for a 9 inch hoop ready to print - Double hoop assembly guide - Bonus embroidery pattern featuring elements of the wreath design, rearranged in a floral spray. Stitch it using the same techniques outlined in the stitch guide (thread painting and satin stitch), or just stitch it up as a simple outline as seen in the sample hoop.
The beginner guide includes: - A supplies list with suggested products based off of my experience - How to get started - Helpful tips and tricks - Diagrams of stitches
The beginner guide can also be found online HERE plus you can find some additional tutorialsHERE.
To complete the project you will also need:
Scissors (embroidery and fabric)
Wood stain and varnish if you choose to treat your natural wooden hoops
an Ultra Fine Sharpie or similar for tracing the design
Glue for finishing (Aleene's, hot glue gun, etc) - or skip the glue and use floss to lace the back of your hoop.
