Embroidery Kit - Rita The Moon and The Stars by Vintage Mad By M
Being an enthusiast seamstress and having loved embroidery as far as I can remember, I have decided to launch my very personal line of embroidery kits.
These kits are all designed by myself and will be related to all the things I love in life.
This kit is suitable for beginners and will delight pin ups lovers.
You can also gift it to a friend who loves crafty stuffs or make it yourself and offer it finished as a lovely and unique little piece of art.
This line of kits is inspired by John Willie' s BIZARRE Magazines, published around the 50' s.
He liked leggy, dark-haired, small-breasted women and used to take photographs and then draw from the photographs.
It is said that the secretaries at BIZARRE were also his models.
This kit is designed and adapted to an embroidery work, using one of Willie' s drawing.
This pattern uses only two easy stitches and might be done in a few evenings.
It is always very pleasant to work on it while travelling plus it is light and easy to pack in a handbag!
The Embroidery Kit comes with:
- an embroidery needle.
- black embroidery floss.
-metallic embroidery thread
- calico with the pattern drawn or printed over it ( you will just have to follow the lines...)
- a good quality ( made in the UK) 5 inches ( 12.5 cm) wooden embroidery hoop.
This hoop can also be used as a frame, and be painted or just left natural.
- strong thread to finish the back of the embroidery with the drawstring method
- an instructions sheet with all the informations you will need.
The finished embroidery will measure 5 inches in diameter.
You can frame it into the hoop and hang it as a decoration, or you can also stitch it over a pillow cover, a jean jacket, or a bag, a notebook cover....
The kit comes in a cellophane envelope
