Embroidery has always played a big part in my creative process (I have degree in the very subject from Manchester University!) and have designed, manufactured and sold embroidered patches since the very beginning of Petra Boase ltd. However, It is only in the last few years that I have got back into doodle stitching.The mindful craft of embroidering simple designs onto pretty much anything a needle will go through! ( Denim and converse my favourites!) With a growing movement in re purposing and recycling our wardrobe it has never felt more timely to push this great craft.
It was the discovery of the vanishing embroidery paper that kickstarted me to develop this Magic stitch kit. The paper is a true game changer for those hesitant to give embroidery a go.I have supplied a wide selection of fun designs that can be traced onto the paper (see demo below) and affixed to what you want to embroider. So if you are looking for a mindful project for yourself or to give as a gift, I think you will really like it!. The kit is suitable for all ages from 8 years.
- Water Soluble embroidery paper
- Selection of embroidery threads
- Design templates
- Embroidery hoop
- Water soluble pen.
A selection of projects using the kit. The bag design was created freestyle by drawing the design direct on to the bag with washable fabric pen.
It's great to be taking the Magic Stitch Kit on the road and hosting workshops in some of our stockists wonderful stores.Here are a few projects from a recent workshop held at Little Mashers in St Leonards on Sea. The happy stitchers ranged from 8-13yrs and I was blown away by what they achieved in the 2 hours. All left feeling very proud of their creations.If you would like to be kept updated on our workshop whereabouts and dates please sign up to our Newsletter.
