This little owl is a favourite of mine. The kit comes with 100% cotton printed in the UK, a 13cm hoop, DMC thread (that’s the best quality thread you can get), a needle, instructions, wadding and a backing disc. You don’t get a backing disc with other embroidery kits, but ours all come with them, because they make it really easy to turn you embroidery into something ready to hang in seconds.
The kit uses a split back stitch to fill the blocks of colour in, your stitching over a print of the illustration so you know where to put each colour. It’s a really simple stitch, but because there is quite a lot of work involved in filling the different areas of colour, we’re saying this is probably for a confident beginner, rather than someone who is just starting out in embroidery.
This kit has been designed using an illustration by Ekaterina Trukhan. Ekaterina is a Russian illustrator who graduated from Camberwell College of Arts with a BA degree in Illustration. She creates illustrations for children's books, magazines and products and is also the author of several children's books published in the UK, USA, Russia and Slovakia.
The kit comes beautifully packaged in our yellow and white striped packages, making the a treat to receive and perfect for gifting.
There is a bird and cherry design in this series so why not check them out too?
