Get ready for Christmas with our small hand embroidery patterns.
Perfect for creating your own set of decorations to hang around your home, or for giving as handmade Christmas gifts to your friends and family; we can’t wait for you to get stuck in! Each kit will arrive packaged in its own box, as if you had bought them separately, so they are perfect for gifting as kits to your creative friends too. You have the option to add the date to the bottom of each hoop too, as a special reminder of the year that the design was stitched - just use the drop down box to select whether you would like us to include the year for you. Each kit includes all of the materials needed to create the hanging decorations, including the gingham ribbon to hang the embroidery hoop. You will also receive pre-printed fabric, with the botanical wreath, our hand written wording and the year (optional) printed onto the linen, so no need for tracing. Needles, full instructions, embroidery hoops, seed beads and threads are also included, meaning you have all the materials you need to create your own set of Christmas decorations.
Each hand embroidery pattern is small enough to fit into a 4” hoop, so you can stitch each embroidery relatively quickly, and have plenty of space to hang them side by side, if you wish. The kits focus on satin stitch and backstitch, so don’t worry if this is your first time trying embroidery - we will take you through step by step, and build your confidence in using two of the fundamental stitches you will find in most embroidery projects.
We have designed our kits to be beautifully presented, so they are ideal for giving as Christmas presents. Everything arrives wrapped in tissue paper, and presented inside a cardboard box, which is finished with a colourful sticker and branded sticker tabs. All of the materials that are required to stitch each project are included, so you will receive the below in each kit (so multiply the list by 3!):
- 2x Needles (1x John James embroidery needle, 1x beading needle)
- Full Instructions (A4 size booklet)
- Linen Fabric with Pre-Printed Outline
- Backer (to place behind the fabric)
- 4” Embroidery Hoop (Elbesee Hardwood Hoop)
- Threads (DMC Stranded Cotton, Appletons Crewel Wool)
- Seed Beads (Size 11 Toho Seed Beads)
- Bobbin of Thread (for attaching beads)
- Gingham Ribbon (for hanging the decoration)
Please note, the scissors shown in the photographs are for decorative purposes only and are not provided with the kit - you will need to provide your own pair.
