This pattern is a lovely staple in my embroidery kitchen and it is commonly requested as a border for anniversary gifts, wedding and baby announcements and quotes. You can use to it highlight and beautify any text or other needlework! Or simply leave the center blank as I did.
Your kit includes:
A five inch wooden embroidery hoop for framing
Two embroidery needles
8 skeins of DMC embroidery floss (for the colorway pictured)
Grey cotton fabric, pre-printed with the design. Note the design is printed to reach the edge of the outer 5 inch embroidery hoop. You may need to shift your fabric within the hoop to stitch the edges.
The color printed embroidery instructions
A copy of the Beginner Guide
Your purchase includes the Woven Rose Border embroidery pattern and a copy of my beginner guide. The embroidery pattern includes a stitch and color key, suggested DMC embroidery floss colors, a full color close up photo of stitched pattern and the design sized for a 5 inch hoop and an 8 inch hoop ready to trace 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.
