Who else rediscovered their love for the great outdoors during the last twelve months? I know me and my family did! We were so thankful for open green spaces, nature trails, and long stomps in the woods. Being able to get outdoors has been a respite from the monotony of lockdown life, and it’s what has inspired this new design.
Our collective love of the outdoors of course isn’t new - outdoor themed designs have always been popular - but this one feels like it captures a national mood at the moment.
Taking inspiration from some of my favourite vintage embroidery patterns, the design has a wonderful retro feel and comes in two colourways; green with yellow thread and white with red.
It’s a really simple, beginner-friendly kit that requires just one simple back stitch to complete, making it the perfect kit to unwind with after a long day. Challenging enough to require your focus, enabling you to switch your mind off from other stresses, but not too challenging you can’t enjoy family time at the same time or completing it whilst the latest Netflix must-see plays in the background.
Everything you need is included in this kit including the hoop, printed fabric, needle, thread, wadding, instructions and backing disc. The backing disc makes it super easy to finish and hang on your wall or prop up on a mantlepiece or shelf, and we’re proud the cotton fabric is printed right here in the UK.
The kit comes packaged beautifully in the signature - fully recyclable - Cotton Clara striped box, making it the perfect unboxing treat or a gorgeous gift for someone.
This hoop measures 15cm diameter.
Loved the sentiment of this and was excited to start, however I was let down with the quality of cotton which had some flaws throughout! This spoiled the overall finished look☹️
