THIS KIT CONTAINS FULL SKEINS OF THREAD – enough thread to complete both the needlecase and the scissorkeeper, i.e., if you purchase a full kit of one and a pattern and print of the other, threads will be sufficient for both. Matching thimblekeeper arriving shortly.
This luxurious kit contains absolutely everything needed to complete it. I have created this new design for the person who has some experience of embroidery. The idea behind the design is that each person gets to create their own unique garden for their needlecase. A basic design is screened/printed onto the fabric ( see Pattern Only picture). This is then added to from the design sheet supplied – the stitcher adds as many flowers as they would like to create their own garden.
The design has been worked on a pure linen/cotton blend fabric, using perle No:12 threads.
Fabric is supplied for the back and front of the needlecase , as well as for the button. In addition backing muslin/calico is included as well as a full set of skeins of thread (14 x perle No:12 for garden, 1 x stranded cotton for edging and 3 twists of stranded cottons for hollyhocks and the flower pot), lining, button for covering, pure wool felt for needle leaves, needles and a comprehensive set of photographs, instructions and stitch glossary.
Finished size of design: 3½” x 6” or 8 x 15cm (embroidered area).
Finished size of needlecase: 5” x 6½” ( or as desired as plenty fabric included)
All of my designer kits are beautifully packaged and presented in sturdy carrier bags, making them very suitable as gifts.
If you would prefer stranded threads to Perle No.12, please email me and I will swop them for you.
