A botanical themed DIY embroidery kit - perfect for learning the techniques of hand embroidery!

This kit is great for beginners, as well as stitchers with a bit more experience - the floral design uses ten types of embroidery stitch, and the guide included gives comprehensive instructions for each one. The kit has everything you need to create your own piece of embroidery art - so they're perfect for people who want to learn the basics of modern embroidery, or as a gift for a crafty friend!

This design was inspired by the work of May Morris - English artisan and lead embroiderer in her father William Morris' textile design company, Morris & Co. 

The kit includes:
* 8 inch 'working' hoop
* 8 inch display hoop
* navy blue cotton fabric
* backing felt
* DMC embroidery threads
* needle
* dressmakers' carbon paper (for transferring the pattern)
* botanical pattern & stencil
* comprehensive instructions for each stage of the project
* 8-page stitch guide, giving instructions and tips on all the stitches this project needs


The wooden display hoop included is ready to hang once the project is finished - all you need to get started are a pair of scissors and a pen!
