Sunbeams hand embroidery kit
This popular pattern is now available as a kit, yay!
Introducing the Sunbeams 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 and suitable for all levels.
Can I stitch this if I’m a beginner?
Absolutely! 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. Whether you’re new to hand embroidery or have had more experience, you’ll love stitching this project.
