This colourful Rainbow embroidery kit is a beautiful, bright way for beginners to learn hand embroidery. The Rainbow design was created in response to the recent COVID-19 crisis - £10 from each sale will be donated to Steps to Hope (more info below).
Using DMC threads for the best colours, this DIY Rainbow kit uses ten types of stitch, making it a great introduction to modern embroidery. The kit includes everything you need to create your own Rainbow art - and the helpful stitch guide provides all of the practical advice you need to learn each technique. That means they're perfect for people who want to learn how to do embroidery, or as a gift for a crafty friend!
The kit includes: * 8 inch 'working' hoop * 8 inch display hoop * navy blue fabric * backing felt * DMC embroidery threads * needle * dressmakers' carbon paper (for transferring the pattern) * rainbow pattern & stencil * comprehensive instructions for each stage of the project * 8 page stitch guide, giving practical instructions and helpful tips on all the stitches this project needs
The wooden display hoop is ready to hang once the project is finished - so all you need to get started on your own Rainbow kit are a pair of scissors and a pen!
