This sweet Spring kit is the perfect project to take with you on the go and add a few stitches here and there and, due to the nature of the fabric prints and your own placement of the templates, each ‘scape will turn out differently, making yours truly one of a kind!
The kit includes the 12cm (5″) hoop, jute ribbon, all of the fabrics and three different kinds of thread, but you will need to have to hand a selection of different eyed sewing needles and scissors.
The embroidery is created using layers of pre-printed cotton fabrics which are then embellished with a variety of hand stitches to create a beautifully textured piece.
Within the instruction leaflet are diagrams for how to make each stitch, and a separate insert page with template pieces to cut out and draw around.
As this kit has been inspired by the Stitchscape #inthehoop series, once the embroidery is completed, there are also instructions on how to mount it within the hoop and how to stitch a circle of felt to the back to finish the piece off.
This is a perfect project for beginners (and more advanced embroiderers) as the instructions coach you through each fabric strip and has plenty of tips and tricks along the way. The majority of stitches used go right back to the basics (back stitch, detached chain stitch, straight stitch, whip stitch…) and includes diagrams on how to execute them.
All Stitchscape embroidery kits are designed so that every one is truly unique to its maker, whether it’s a slightly different placement of the patterned pieces or personal preference on positioning the stitches, not one Stitchscape will be the same when finished.
Within the instruction leaflet are diagrams for how to make each stitch. There is also a separate insert page with template pieces to cut out and draw around.
Beth Power, the designer, has also included full contact details if you get stuck, need advice or have any kind of problem.
Once the embroidery is completed, you can either frame it in the hoop or mount it in a beautiful frame to finish the piece off.
