This kit is a perfect introduction to embroidery. Suitable for children (age 9+) and adults looking for a relaxing guided sewing project. Children will need some support learning stitches, but with a little practice can do this quite independently.
The design is printed on a lovely linen-cotton blend fabric, and gives a colourful base to work your stitches on. The in-depth guide book offers all you need to know, including how to look after your threads and get started, along with guides and illustrations for the individual stitches you'll need.
You can use your embroidered panel however you wish, by framing it or sewing it into something. The panel has been designed to work perfectly as a sewn, stuffed, ornament, and instructions for how to achieve this are also included.
The kit includes the supplies you'll need to create the elephant ornament. Instructions are for using a sewing machine to complete this, but equally you can sew this by hand using a small, secure backstitch with the machine thread.
This beautiful kit contains the following:
1 printed cotton/linen elephant panel
5 full skeins of DMC embroidery thread
An embroidery hoop
A hand sewing needle
Our full colour, highly illustrated sewing guide
In addition, we now include the materials to complete as an ornament:
Calico backing fabric, pins, machine thread and stuffing
Size of design area: 20 x 18 cms
A gift for our granddaughter who confirms this is a great product, with good instructions. She really enjoyed working on this which was complete with stuffing.
