Create your own embroidered Christmas decoration with one of our kits, personalised with a letter of your choice. Whether you want to give embroidery kits as gifts, or stitch one for each member of your family, we hope you love them.
Ready to get started with embroidery?!
It doesn’t matter if you have never picked up a needle and thread before, or maybe you haven’t since you were at school. Either way, this is the perfect mini kit to give you a taster of embroidery. The outline of the letter is pre-stitched for you, so you don’t have to worry about straight lines, even stitching or proportions. Our instructions use a mixture of diagrams, written step by step directions, video tutorials and photographs to guide you through creating your own embroidered Christmas decoration. The idea is to fill your letter with straight stitches using white thread to make it really stand out against the red background. We have also included some little beads to add a touch of Christmas sparkle to your letter and the snowflakes around the edge.
The embroidery kit will take a couple of hours to complete, so it’s the perfect gift to give to someone creative, who you know would love to put their feet up and do some stitching on Christmas day! We have designed the embroidery kit to fit straight through the letterbox, so we can post your gift straight to the recipient - just add their shipping address at the checkout & write a little note to wish them a Merry Christmas. Alternatively, as the decorations are easy and relatively quick to make, you could also stitch the letters yourself, to make really thoughtful, handmade gifts for your closest friends and family.
We have worked really hard on our packaging to ensure that everything needed to complete the kit is included and beautifully presented in tissue paper, concealed inside a branded box. Your chosen letter is then hand illustrated on the front of the box, all ready to ship out to you in our eco-friendly packaging. All the materials you need are included and are listed below:
- 2x Needles (1x John James embroidery needle, 1x beading needle)
- Full Instructions (A4 size booklet)
