Create a decoration perfect for spreading the Christmas spirit with our Hope embroidery kit. Whether you want to hang it in your own home, or hand make a gift for a friend, we hope you enjoy stitching the design.
Make your own embroidery hoop Christmas decoration!
Our hope embroidery kit is supplied with all of the resources (except a pair of scissors) that you will need to stitch your own Christmas decoration. The linen fabric provided in the kit is printed with the design, ready for you to stitch straight on top of, meaning you don’t need to trace the pattern before you start. Kirsty has hand written the word ‘hope’ which is printed in the middle, to create a really handmade feel to the embroidery hoop design. You also have the option to add the year to the bottom of the decoration, so you know which year you stitched it, if this is something you would like to include.
We know that Christmas time can be really busy and chaotic, so we designed this kit to help you de-stress and relax. The design combines the use of just two different stitches: satin stitch and backstitch with seed beads. This makes the kit really easy to get the hang of, and the small 4” size means it shouldn’t take you too long to create your decoration. So, if you enjoy a cosy evening on the sofa watching TV, why not spend some time being creative, and pop some embroidery into the mix too?! Once you have finished making your Christmas decoration, we have included some red and white gingham ribbon for you to hang your hoop from, making it really easy to display in your home.

- 2x Needles (1x John James embroidery needle, 1x beading needle)
