Here at Paraffle we want to bring embroidery to as many people as possible.

We keep three blogs updated:

👩‍🏫 One for the basics.

🎬One for the stitches.

💡And one for inspiration.

Elephant Banner Embroidery Kit

This paisley Elephant banner kit is a great way for beginners to learn the basics of modern embroidery.

The DIY kit includes everything you need to get started on your own tapestry style wall hanging. Our Elephant design uses 10 different embroidery stitches, and the comprehensive guide included has all the instructions and photos you need to learn the different techniques - making it easy to get started!

FREE shipping if you spend over £30

Standard shipping is £1.49

    1. Our kits are as eco-friendly as possible, with organic & ethically sourced fabric, FSC wooden hoops made in the UK, FSC and or recycled paper/card, and recycled postal mailers.

    2. All Paraffle kits are handmade in Scotland, in our Edinburgh studio - buying from us means supporting a small, female founded business.

    3. All of our kits - from super simple to intermediate - include a detailed booklet, with lots of photos to teach you each stitch. If videos are more your style, there’s video tutorials covering every stitch you’ll need in our ‘Stitches’ blog.

    4. The kit includes a high quality reference photo of the finished design, and an easy to follow key showing you which stitches and colours to use.

    5. Each kit includes a quality 8 inch wooden hoop and plenty of DMC thread (so don’t worry if you make a mistake or want to practice first!).

    6. Our kits come with a pre-printed pattern to stick onto your fabric. It’s water-soluble, so you simply stitch over it, then wash it away (don’t worry, the threads are coloursafe!). Our patterns aren’t printed directly onto the fabric - we’ve done our research, and haven’t found any fabric printers that can tell us exactly where their fabric comes from and how it’s made. That’s important to us - so we found another way!

    7. Embroidery is a helpful tool for encouraging mindfulness and giving you some extra head space. Our kits aim to gently teach you lifelong skills and get your creative juices flowing (even if you’re not a ‘crafty’ person!).

    8. We’re a carbon neutral business, and donate at least 10% of our profits to charity through dedicated charity designs.

Love my little elephant banner. Instructions are simple to follow and it's wonderfully relaxing to sit embroidering.

Just as described. Nice to create a picture on a dark background, and to have everything you need to hang it on the wall. Fun to do, and make a great birthday present for friends who enjoy making things.

Still a work in progress, but Sammy's patterns are so easy to follow, and it's lovely seeing the design developing over time. I'm making this banner as a gift, so it's a bonus that I get to enjoy making it too. It was dispatched really quickly giving me plenty of time to work on it, and I know the recipient will love it.
