Paisley Sloth Hand Embroidery Kit - a DIY kit for contemporary and modern embroidery.
This version of my Sloth design - with a green background, rather than my signature navy blue - has been created for Communidad Inti Wara Yassi, a wildlife sanctuary in Bolivia (more details below). £10 from each kit sold will be donated directly to their efforts toward rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for wild animals seized from illegal trafficking.
These kits are great for beginners and pros alike - each one is designed to include ten types of embroidery stitch, and the guide included gives comprehensive instructions for each one. That means they're perfect for people who want to learn the techniques of embroidery, or as a gift for a crafty friend!
The kit includes: * 8 inch 'working' hoop * 8 inch display hoop * green fabric * backing felt * DMC embroidery threads * needle * dressmakers' carbon paper (for transferring the pattern) * paisley sloth pattern & stencil * comprehensive instructions for each stage of the project * 4-page stitch guide, giving instructions and tips on all the stitches this project needs
The wooden hoop included is ready to hang once the project is finished (note: pictures of kit contents are currently being updated to include both hoops).
All you need to get started are a pair of scissors and a pen!
Communidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY) is a Bolivian non-governmental organisation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and care of wildlife that has fallen victim to illegal trafficking and other harm. They collaborate with the Bolivian authorities to enforce the law, to seize and rescue animals from poachers and merchants, as well as zoos when conditions do not meet legal requirements. As Bolivia’s leading organisation in the fight for animal rights and wildlife care, they conduct educational projects locally and nationally, as well as research projects that support their conservation efforts.
