The insect embroidery kit collection includes three of our favourite projects: the bee embroidery kit, the ladybird embroidery kit and the dragonfly embroidery kit. Instead of purchasing each separately, you save over £12 when you buy the collection.
Our wildlife embroidery kits help you to recreate Britain’s most loved creatures.
Each of the insect embroidery kits included in the collection is designed to be presented inside a 6” embroidery hoop and is stitched onto the same off-white linen fabric; this means that the patterns all sit seamlessly together and can be presented side by side. We have also used the same stitches (satin stitch and backstitch) in each kit, so that each design links beautifully with the next.
Included in each kit are both DMC stranded cotton and Appletons crewel wool, alongside Toho seed beads. We want to give you the opportunity to use different textures, materials and types of thread in our projects, some of which you may never have used before. All of the other materials that you need to complete each project are also included: embroidery needles, beading needles, pre-printed linen fabric, hardwood embroidery hoops and complete instructions. In case you don’t want to complete all of the kits yourself, but want to give them as gifts, or save them for special occasions, you will receive a full kit for each project, as if you had purchased each one separately. Each kit has all of the materials packaged inside a sheet of tissue paper, and is placed inside its own box, which is finished with a branded sticker to show what the completed project will look like.
The only thing you will need to supply to complete the projects is a pair of scissors - all of the other supplies that you will need are included. You will receive three full embroidery kits, so multiply the list below 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)
- 6” 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)
Please note, the scissors shown in the photograph are for decorative purposes only and are not provided with the kit - you will need to provide your own pair.
