The penguin embroidery kit is stitched onto a blue coloured linen fabric, using crewel wool, stranded cotton, acrylic yarn and seed beads. It’s one of our favourite projects, and perfect for winter!
Are you ready to stitch one of our embroidery kit animals?
Penguins are one of our favourite animals here in the Kirsty Freeman Design studio - so we decided to make a kit, perfect for stitching on cold winter evenings. We have pre-stitched the outline of the penguin and the line of snow for you, so you don’t have to worry about placement and proportions. Instead, you get to fill in each section of the penguin with our unique modern embroidery stitches. We have created a ‘paint by numbers’ style key for you to follow, so you know which thread colour and stitch pattern are used to fill each section. Each stitch is easy to learn from our step-by-step illustrated diagrams - we also have video tutorials to help you along the way!
Whether you are looking for a new craft project to get stuck into, or are searching for a Christmas present for a friend, we hope you love our penguin embroidery kit! We make sure everything you need is included - the only extra thing you will need to complete the kit is a pair of scissors. So, we hope you are ready to sit down, relax and spend some time being creative. If you need any help at all, just let us know - we are always more than happy to help!
We are really proud of the packaging we have designed for our embroidery kits - it is eco-friendly and great for gifting! All of your materials are wrapped inside a piece of tissue paper and placed inside a cardboard box, which shows an image of the finished penguin kit.
