Limited edition embroidery kit No 1: Snowdrops
A little hand painted cup of snowdrops on my windowsill last year inspired this design, a bunch of almost life size snowdrops in a little mug. The neat, letterbox-friendly box contains a ribbon-tied card folder printed with the full colour design and drawn and written instructions. Dotted among these, are some other ideas you could embroider, some poetry and a few facts about snowdrops.
The finished design is roughly 15cm square, and is printed on a piece of antique French linen roughly 30cm square. The kit also contains a thread card with all the threads you will need, a smaller piece of linen and a few little surprises, which could can either incorporate in the final design or use for other projects.
Also included are separate, illustrated stitch cards for the stitches used in the design, which you can keep in your sewing box.
To complete the kit you will need a 7″ or 8″ embroidery hoop, a selection of embroidery needles (sizes 7-8) and a paid of small, sharp embroidery scissors.
Although the kit folder is printed, the linen is hand printed, and all the contents are gathered and packed by hand, so please allow a two week delivery period.
Postage and packing is included in the price.
