Rainbow Cushion Embroidery Kit - a DIY kit for modern hand embroidery.
This kit was created in response to the recent COVID-19 crisis - £15 from each sale will be donated to Steps to Hope (more info below).
This kit has everything that you need to embroider your own fancy cushion cover - each one is designed to include ten types of embroidery stitch, and the guide included gives comprehensive instructions for each one. The cushion cover included is premade, Fairtrade and Organic, with a zip opening - so no difficult sewing required, just the lovely embroidery!
These kits are great for beginners and pros alike - that means they're perfect for people who want to learn the techniques of embroidery, or as a gift for a crafty friend. Plus, you can display and use your handiwork once you're done!
Each kit contains:
* 8 inch embroidery hoop * Cushion cover (45cm x 45cm) * DMC embroidery threads * needle & safety pins * dressmakers' carbon paper * Pattern & stencil * comprehensive instructions for each stage of the project * 8-page stitch guide, giving instructions and tips on all the stitches this project needs * iron-on interfacing, for securing the threads
All you need to get started are a pair of scissors, a pen, and an iron - easy!
Note that cushion filler/inner is not provided with this kit.
You can also stitch this design onto a bag to show off out and about - check out our Totes collection for more inspiration!
If you already have some materials and want to purchase a downloadable version of the pattern, these are also available on our website.
