This kit is a perfect introduction to embroidery. This is a project we have sewn in our children's classes and is an enjoyable project to let children aged 9+ try out embroidery.
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.
This sewing project is suitable for anyone from the age of 9+, adults and children alike!
You can use your completed 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. Note that you would need a sewing machine, some backing fabric, and some stuffing to create this finish. If you'd like to purchase the supplies to complete the stuffed elephant please select the ornament kit option. The machine sewing is a little technical for children so you may need to help with this part if buying for a child.
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
Optional: add all the supplies you'll need to sew your completed panel into a cute stuffed ornament. See image 4: this includes stuffing, calico backing fabric, pins and Gutermann sewing thread.
