Paris holds so many memories for me, I lived there for a couple of months after graduated from University, working for a small design studio. I just have such ingrained memories of post work espressos, walking around the city in the evenings, sitting outside Notre Dame drawing, and visiting the Picasso museum again and again. I don't think any city I've visited beats Paris for sheer beauty and elegance. We've tried to include a snapshot of the amazing experience that Paris is in this embroidery kit. Croissants and coffee, of course the Eiffel tower and the distinctive Metro signs.
We've printed this design onto pan oatmeal fabric and given you a dark grey thread to stitch with.
Stitch your own souvenir from your travels, or make a point of manifesting a trip to the city of your dreams with our Maptote embroidery kit collaboration. We've created four place embroidery kits with Maptote including Paris, New York, London and Texas. There is lots of detail in these kits, so they will take patience, but they are perfectly suitable for beginners, using just two main stitches.
