Brighter Days Are Coming kit
PREORDER the Brighter Days Are Coming kit today in either black and white or full colour fabric – first preorders will be posted on Thursday 4th February.
The first kit to accompany The Happy Stitch Project is here! The Brighter Days Are Coming kit will help you to get creative and experiment with using different stitches. It is available in two different fabric options because it’s what I like to call a ‘flexi-kit’. The black and white option is perfect if you want to stitch in block colour using a satin stitch or other filling stitch (shown in the main photo with satin stitch). The full colour fabric allows you to add decorative stitches to the sun motif to really make it your own! See additional photo for some ideas of how this works. You can also mix and match the colours to suit you, as full skeins are provided in the kit. Stitch the text in coral or black, or leave it unstitched if you prefer.
Can I stitch this if I’m a beginner?
Absolutely! The stitches used in this design are all part of The Happy Stitch Project, so you’ll be able to refer to the video tutorials to be able to complete them. Yay! You’ll receive a PDF booklet too (sent via We Transfer – see below) and will have links to all the tutorials on YouTube. You’ll enjoy stitching this positive design as a more experienced stitcher too!
What’s included in a Brighter Days Are Coming kit?
All Hello! Hooray! kits include the highest quality materials, and this kit includes the following:
