Butterflies and insects are showing up everywhere in modern interiors. Why do we love these little creatures so much? My theory: a) because they are beautiful and b) because of their ability to fly away and escape. How often have you wished you could do that?
Your complete needlepoint kit will include the following:
Canvas - Each canvas is printed on Zweigart 14 mesh Mono Deluxe canvas. The design is 14" x 18" and the overall canvas size is 19" x 23". The canvas also has a strip of color blocks down one side for you to use as a shade card.
Pattern - A large scale, full color, easy to read pattern printed on 2 sheets of 13" x 19" paper. The pattern is accurately scaled for 14 mesh to match your canvas. Why do I send a pattern if the design is printed on the canvas? Honestly, because I'm a perfectionist. I have never worked a painted or printed canvas where there was not at least one intersection or row that was in question. I have included the pattern so if you have this dilemma you can quickly and easily make the right choice.
Yarn - Generous amounts of clearly labeled Silk & Ivory yarn. Hands down the best needlepoint thread out there!! Silk & Ivory has a soft, lovely sheen. It is made in Switzerland of 50% silk and 50% Merino wool. It's like stitching with butter!
Needles - Two #22 tapestry needles
Instructions - You'll receive a diagram detailing how to stitch using the continental tent stitch and tips to ensure your project goes smoothly.
Each kit is neatly presented in a 100% recycled kraft gift box making it ideal for gift giving.
Each design is available in three forms: as a pattern (chart), as a printed canvas, or as a kit.
