The Stitchery Embroidery Kit: Fairytale Swan

This is quite possibly one of my favourite kits. A crowned swan sitting on a bed of flowers.

The kit includes a 10” square piece of hand-printed antique linen together with the threads and instructions required to complete the pattern. The finished embroidery of this kit can be used in so many ways, and I don’t think is limited to just Christmas. The beautiful pastel flowers along with the delicate colours of the swan would look lovely as a wall hanging in a child’s bedroom, made into a cushion or even into a hanging lavender heart.

It is important to me that packaging and storage for my work is beautiful as well as functional. Kits from The Stitchery are packed in beautiful, sturdy, textured card folders that close with a hand-dyed silk ribbon. This means that they make lovely gifts as well as providing a home for your work in between stitching sessions.

To complete the kit you will also need a packet of needles (a size 5 is a good all-rounder for beginners), a pair of small, sharp, needlework scissors and 5” embroidery hoop.
