Butterfly Embroidery Kit

Rated 4.7 out of 5
Based on 3 reviews

"If nothing ever changed, there would be no such things as butterflies..."

This bright butterfly is design a natural progression of my beginner kits - and still includes full photo instructions for each new stitch, to expand your embroidery skills.

  • uses organic, ethically produced fabric
  • aimed at intermediate stitchers (or ambitious beginners!)
  • includes full photo instructions for each stitch used & quality DMC threads
  • finished hoop measures 8 inches (20cm) across

 This kit is aimed at people who have already completed one of my Beginners kits, so the working hoop is optional (best to add one if it's a gift!)

Paraffle Note: this kit was created one Spring, after a beautiful Peacock butterfly came fluttering through my flat. Being on the third floor - and having had our windows sealed against the Scottish winter for months - I wondered whether it spent the colder months hibernating with us. The contrast of bright colours against the teal background evokes the freshness of Spring and new beginnings; and the Turkey Work stitch used to create the fluffy body is just so tactile!

Butterfly embroidery

Nice wool and material, would have been better if outline had been put on material.

I have not begun stitching this kit yet, but I have completed many other Paraffle kits during the past year. The last one I completed was the Dragonfly, which was the first Intermediate kit. To do this, the stitch guide was essential, as I had never used any of the 10 stitches before! The guide is so detailed and helpful, I managed to complete the Dragonfly with a few practices of each stitch and on two or three occasions, on the real design, when I had to unpick and redo a stitch. There is ample thread included in these kits to allow you to do this. After my first attempt at all of the 10 new stitches, I was eager to practice and perfect them in another kit. I love the vibrant colours and design of this gorgeous Butterfly, so I placed an order for it. I can't wait to start sewing it! It appears to be more detailed than the dragonfly but with the stitch guide and all the useful blogs and videos on the Paraffle website, I feel well equipped. Sammy is always willing to help you out, if required, too ? The quality of the materials provided in the kit is very good and the detailed instructions really helpful. I would recommend any of the kits from Paraffle.
