This Botanical themed tote bag kit is a fabulous way for beginners to learn the techniques of modern embroidery.
The vintage floral design includes ten basic embroidery stitches, and the guide included gives comprehensive instructions for each one - making it easy to get started on your own piece of hand embroidery! The tote bag included in the kit is organic and ethically sourced; so is a perfect way to do some eco-friendly shopping while showing off your handiwork.
This design was inspired by the work of May Morris - head embroiderer in William Morris' textile design company, Morris & Co. - so makes a great gift for crafters at any level.

* practical instructions for each stage of the project
