Having exhibited my designs at craft exhibitions over the years I was often asked to conduct demonstrations of ‘threadpainting’. As a result I designed a beginners kit to illustrate the basic techniques of creating lifelike characters with real personality.
’ Mr. Carrots’ is a bunny sitting in the vegetable garden harvesting that special carrot for dinner. The kit includes the design pre printed on the fabric and includes the stitch direction lines to help the stitcher master this technique. It also includes all of the threads, instructions & needles to stitch the design.
Once stitched the embroidery can be used on a library bag, pin cushion or even used as a panel on a baby rug.
