Sunshine and flowers pin cushion kit



Enter your email & we'll notify you when we restock!

To herald the arrival of spring and the gorgeous sunshine, Lorna has created this new simple pincushion kit especially for those who have never tried their hand at crewel embroidery.

A few stitches are used repetitively so that you can easily cope with the stitches. For those more experienced you can change some of the flowers and use slightly more difficult stitches eg. bullion roses or cast-on roses etc. She has used a lively spring green cotton and instead of inserting cut lengths of thread, includes 8 FULL SKEINS OF PERLE NO 12 cotton thread, as well as a skein for the cord. 

This comes as a full kit with the design printed onto the green fabric, backing, all threads, thread for cord, needles, full set of step by step instructions,stitch glossary, two colour photograph and the pincushion form. Design measures 3 inches or 7.5cm in diameter. All of these designer kits are beautifully packaged and presented in sturdy carrier bags, making them very suitable as gifts.
