For the first time you can embroider one of my designs yourself with my new hand embroidery kits. With the kits you can make your own goldwork and beaded mittens decoration, perfect for your Christmas tree this coming festive season.
The kits include all the materials and essential equipment you need to create the decoration. This includes beads, goldwork wires, needles, fabric and sewing threads. The only additional items that you will need are an embroidery hoop and some scissors. The kit is available in two colour ways, one based around gold and another around silver.
These hand embroidery kits are perfect for anyone who is curious about goldwork but is unsure of where to start as I take you through several goldwork techniques in the instructions, these include using felt padding, applying pearl purl and cutwork with purls, which are all frequently used techniques in goldwork embroidery. The instructions include images and an explanation for each step of the process of making the mittens. They also explain two different methods of transferring the design to the fabric, which you may also find useful for future embroidery projects.
As goldwork is a more advanced embroidery technique, the kits are suitable for people who have an understanding of basic embroidery stitches. However, as mentioned the instructions are comprehensive so you do not need to be an embroidery expert in order to embroider this design.
I think there is nothing better at this time of year, as the weather starts to get colder, than spending some time with an embroidery project and this kit would make the perfect weekend project. You can find out more information and purchase your kit here, don't delay, there are only a limited number of kits available!
