  • Materials: dmc threads, dmc floss, dmc embroidery, embroidery hoop, embroidery scissors, embroidery needles, embroidery booklet

*please read before purchase* - the embroidery scissors and erasable pen are essential to the project (especially the pen, as your trace the design to the fabric yourself!). If you've never bought one of my kits before please select to have the scissors and pen included. If you have bought one, you can select to have a kit sent without them so you don't double up on these handy tools!

This kit contains all the bells and whistles, it has absolutely everything you will need to make this beautiful wall hanging pictured. It’s also designed to not only teach you how to embroider one design, but to set you up with a few skills and tools so that you can continue you’re embroidery journey if you choose to do so!

I’ve made many mistakes and learnt a lot on my hand-embroidery journey so far. There’s a lot out there and lots of different ways to do things, and through trial and error I’ve settled on my own methods to get the results I want in the easiest way – and that’s what I’m sharing with you! The instructions contain diagrams to help you learn each stitch, as well as photos to help you through each step of the project itself. This is the perfect gift for a loved one, yourself or anyone who wants to have a go at embroidery. There is a fair amount of reading to do in the instructions, so this kit may not be suitable for young kids.

This kit contains:
- 2 x embroidery needles needles
- 10x full skeins of embroidery floss
- 10 x floss bobbins
- An erasable pen
- 18cm embroidery hoop
- 2 x pieces of fabric. One to stitch the design onto (design is NOT printed on fabric, I'll teach you how to transfer it yourself), and one to practice your stitches on while you build up your confidence.
- Instruction booklet written by me (Lily) including diagrams and photos
- 6 x adhesive dots to help your transfer the pattern
- Embroidery pattern
- Embroidery scissors
- A tea bag for you to enjoy while you stitch!
