This embroidery kit features needle painting and stumpwork techniques. A detailed step-by-step instruction with plenty of images shows how to embroider the flamingo using 'long and short' stitch and how to blend the colours smoothly to get a natural shading. It also shows how to add interest to the background by playing with different surface stitches for the leaves. 3D stumpwork leaves which are stitched separately and then applied onto the embroidery is a stunning detail that you will also practice here.
The design is small and approximately 10cm x 10cm (4" x 4"), which makes it look cute.
The kit includes all materials you will need for the project: silk dupion and calico fabric, embroidery threads, stumpwork wire, needles and beads. And of course, it includes the instruction which is colourful, professionally printed, and made into a nice booklet.
There are some tools you will need to have your own: embroidery scissors and a hoop. An eight-inch hoop will suit as it is big enough to fit the design.
Please bear in mind that this is a pre-order listing which means you will need to wait till the kits are made. I will be collecting pre-orders till 25th of October, and then I will start making the kits. I am going to send all the orders starting from 13th of November the latest. Hopefully, I will be able to post them even sooner, but it depends on availability of all the materials in shops.
I could not add a video showing the beauty and dimension of the design, but you can check it on my instagram page. Thanks for popping in and have a nice day!
