Go on! have a go at stitching your own unique Stitchscape!
This sweet ladybird and flower themed kit is the perfect project to take with you on the go and add a few stitches here and there. 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 all of the fabrics, hessian tape and embroidery threads, but you will also need a 15cm (6″) embroidery hoop, white sewing cotton (for tacking), differed eye sized needles and scissors.
The embroidery is created using layers of printed cotton fabrics which are then embellished with a variety of hand stitches to create a beautifully textured piece. With the inclusion of the lovely ladybirds (which you may wish to trim differently to avoid cutting through a bug) and a wide pattern repeat floral, each kit will have slightly different placements of stitching for these layers which may not be exactly as pictured above.
Within the instruction leaflet are diagrams for how to make each stitch. There is a separate insert page with template pieces to cut out and draw around.
(Please note, due to a misprint the templates may read ‘Ladybug Hill’ but the template pieces are correct.)
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.
