This kit is great for adventurous beginners and intermediate stitchers. You'll get plenty of practice with satin stitch and using split stitch to fill a shape. This project is perfect for people thinking about getting into thread painting (long and short stitch) who just want to hone a few more skills first!
The embroidery kit includes:
8 skeins of DMC cotton embroidery floss
Pink cotton fabric, permanently stamped with the full color design
One 6 inch wooden embroidery hoop for framing
Hand embroidery needles
The color printed embroidery instructions
A copy of the Beginner Guide
Your purchase includes the Leafy Cockatoo embroidery pattern and a copy of my beginner guide. The embroidery pattern includes a stitch and direction key, step-by-step instruction, a color photo of the finished embroidery art, and the design ready for you to shrink or enlarge for future projects.
The beginner guide includes a supplies list with suggested products based off of my experience, tips on how to get started, including pattern transfer suggestions for future projects, plus diagrams of stitches. The beginner guide can also be found onlinehere plus you can find some additional tutorialshere.
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.
