Swallow Hand Embroidery Kit - a DIY kit for contemporary and modern embroidery.
These kits are great for beginners and pros alike - each one is designed to include ten types of embroidery stitch, and the guide included gives comprehensive instructions for each one. That means they're perfect for people who want to learn the techniques of 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 fabric * backing felt * DMC embroidery threads * needle * dressmakers' carbon paper (for transferring the pattern) * paisley swallow pattern & stencil * comprehensive instructions for each stage of the project * 4-page stitch guide, giving instructions and tips on all the stitches this project needs
The wooden display hoop is ready to hang once the project is finished (note: pictures of kit contents are currently being updated to include both hoops).
All you need to get started are a pair of scissors and a pen!
