Stitch your own dachshund with our sausage dog embroidery kit. Whether you are new to embroidery or an avid stitcher, this kit will teach you some new, unique stitches, inspired by a combination of back stitch and french knots.
Our kits make perfect creative gifts for adults.
Maybe you are looking for an embroidery project to get stuck into, or are looking for a present for someone creative, either way, we hope you love this dachshund. It is a larger project, fitting inside a 9” embroidery hoop, so it is a great way to spend some time with your feet up and creating something wonderful. We have pre-stitched the outline of the dachshund for you, onto the linen fabric, which means that even as a beginner, you can enjoy filling your dachshund with stitches. The instructions explain how to fill each section of the dog with the correct thread and stitch pattern, in a simple ‘paint by numbers’ style. We supply a mixture of DMC stranded cotton, Appletons crewel wool and Toho seed beads with the project, so we show you how to use plenty of different materials that you may not have tried before.
To give the sausage dog embroidery kit a really contemporary style, we have created the kit with a hint of pink, or hint of blue in the design, to make it look really modern. We are big believers that embroidery isn’t just for the older generations, or for women, but it’s for everybody! Doing embroidery is a great way to practise some self-care and take time out from our busy world to get stuck into a creative, and really rewarding, hobby.
In case you do want to give this kit as a gift to a creative mum or friend (or if you just want to spoil yourself), we make sure that every kit is beautifully packed and exciting to open. Your kit will include everything you need to make the project:
