This happy little pair of blackwork mushrooms proves a real hit at workshops.
Completed in backstitch and Holbein stitch on a pre drawn background, this project offers a range of blackwork techniques.
The design will be hand drawn on to evenweave using a water soluble ink which can easily be removed once the design is complete by dabbing with a moistened cotton pad.
Shading is achieved by the use of different threads and part stitches.
Blackwork is very rewarding and therapeutic to stitch, it works quite quickly and once you can see where you are going with the design, there is no need to keep looking at the chart, except to see where threads and stitches change.
The threads supplied are of the highest quality fine perle and mercerised 100% cotton.
The kit comes complete with chart and full instructions and the finished piece measures approx. 13 x 13cm.
The kit contains;
- Chart x A5
- Instructions x 1 A4
- 28 count natural evenweave (approx 22 x 22cm)
- Finest perle and mercersied 100% cotton threads.
- High quality Permin gold plated needle.
(If you require another colour option, please just ask and we can easily put the pack together for you).
For those who may wish to use up some of their stash of threads or create their own project, we have created postal and PDF versions of the chart.
Posted charts will be sent via Royal Mail first class post.
