Up-cycling Embroidery Kits - perfect for adding Paraffle designs to bags, jackets, dresses, shirts, or cushions to give them a revamp!
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. This kit has everything you need to embroider a design on to your own item - they're perfect for people who want to learn the techniques of embroidery, or as a gift for a crafty friend. Plus, you can show off your handiwork while out and about!
Each Upcycling Kit includes:
* 8 inch bamboo hoop * needle & safety pins * DMC embroidery threads * Carbon paper * 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 * iron-on interfacing (grey), for stabilising the fabric and securing the threads
All you need to get started are a pair of scissors, a pen, and an iron - plus the piece of fabric or clothing that you want to up-cycle - easy!
Note: the interfacing included helps to stiffen and stabilise your fabric of choice - but I'd always recommend stitching onto a medium to heavy weight fabric (like a good cotton blouse, a cushion cover, or a tote bag). Stitching onto thin or stretchy fabrics (like T-shirts or jersey) can cause the material to warp or bunch up!
When ordering, please specify whether you want to stitch onto a light or dark background - I will include the most appropriate colour of carbon paper and interfacing, to make sure you can fully transfer the pattern.
