Sunbeams banner hand embroidery kit
***Please note that this project should be stitched on an 18″ x 12″ tapestry frame, which is sold separately (details below)***
AVAILABLE TO PREORDER NOW! Back by popular demand, it’s the Sunbeams banner hand embroidery kit! Featuring a beautiful quote by Roald Dahl, this kit comes with all the high quality materials that you’ll need to hand stitch this design. The combination of the words, beautiful colours and pattern will really lift your spirits each time you stitch! This is a project that will take time to complete, but is thoroughly rewarding.
Can I stitch this if I’m a beginner?
Absolutely! Some experience of using a sewing machine is advisable, but you don’t need to have done any hand embroidery before. You only need to know two stitches for this project, which are back stitch for the text and satin stitch for the border of the design. The very detailed step-by-step instructions include full colour photos, so you’ll learn how to do it in no time! The design is pre-printed onto cotton fabric so there’s no need to worry about transferring it yourself, and the number for each colour of thread is indicated in the pdf pattern booklet.
What’s included in a Sunbeams banner hand embroidery kit?
All Hello! Hooray! kits include the highest quality materials, and the Sunbeams banner kit includes the following:
- Pre-printed quality cotton fabric, plus white fabric for the back of the banner
- A piece of lightweight interfacing
- 11 full skeins of DMC embroidery thread
- Giant pom pom trim in a choice of colours
- Detailed instructions (in PDF format), including step-by-step photos
- Needle and pins
- A 100m spool of white Gutermann polyester thread
- A piece of high quality wooden dowel
- A length of pale green and white twine to hang the completed banner
And all of this is presented in a lovely box for you to keep for yourself or gift to someone else. Yay!
***IMPORTANT: The project needs to be stitched on an 18″ x 12″ tapestry frame, which is sold separately. I recommend the Elbesee Easy Clip tapestry frame as it’s so easy to use! You can purchase one here if you need one.***
