This Peacock embroidery kit is a wonderful way for beginners to learn the basics of hand embroidery.
Using ten different stitches, the modern paisley design works wonderfully on the peacock's feathers; and the touches of gold metallic thread make the colours really pop. The kit includes everything you need to get started on your own piece of contemporary embroidery, and includes a helpful stitch guide, providing plenty of practical instructions and photos to help you along the way! It can be a great new project for yourself - or a lovely gift for a creative friend.
The kit includes:
* 8 inch display hoop
* 8 inch 'working' hoop
* navy blue cotton fabric
* backing felt
* DMC embroidery threads
* dressmakers' carbon paper (to transfer the pattern)
* paisley peacock pattern & stencil
* practical instructions for each stage of the project
* 8 page stitch guide, showing all the stitches this project needs
The display hoop included is ready to hang once the project is finished - so all you need to get started are a pair of scissors and a pen!
I went rogue with this one and switched up the colours, lovely size and simple pattern
I love the Peacock! The instructions are easy to follow, and for someone who has never done any embroidery, it's turned out pretty good!
Fantastic kit, really pleased with the content and beautiful design. Can't wait to get stitching.
Beautiful first kit bought. Great set of instructions. Received lots of compliments. Thank you!
I've done countless cross stitch needlepoint projects but I've always been intimidated by embroidery. This was my second embroidery project and the instructions were amazing and easy to follow. I failed at transfering the pattern via the carbon paper but I was able to free hand it with the super faint guidelines I was able to get. The hoop is fantastic and it was nice having most of the supplies I needed supplied in the kit. Highly recommend!
