In Embroidery Designs: Classic Creations you’ll find everything you need to get started on your own gorgeous, hand-stitched artwork. Perfect for crafters new to embroidery and experienced stitchers alike, twelve original designs blend classic style and undeniable cuteness with an elegant, modern sensibility. This beautiful, fully stocked kit includes twelve patterns, two needles, three iron-on transfer sheets, two pieces of white fabric, ten skeins of colorful embroidery thread, and a six-inch embroidery hoop. An illustrated book guides you with step-by-step directions and full-color photographs for each design, as well as helpful pointers and instructions for the basic stitches. Projects include a fox, a bird, a potted plant, an apple, a raccoon, and more—perfect for adding personality to everything from tea towels and tote bags to onesies, napkins, and pillowcases. Or hang finished pieces in the hoop for striking standalone artwork. However, you choose to use them, these lovely patterns have sweetness to spare.
