Under the Sea is a counted blackwork kit featuring some lovely DMC Colour Variations threads.
This is the first in a series of marine designs which we have created for blackwork and cross stitch.
Blackwork is very similar to cross stitch but works much faster due to the stitches covering a larger area. This piece could easily be completed in a weekend.
Each area of the anchor, shell and sea horse is worked in a different blackwork stitch with another stitch used to create the impression of water.
Blending the threads creates a subtle variation in colour and the piece is finished with a lovely metallic thread for the broken anchor chain.
The kit comes complete with everything needed to complete the design which measures 17 x 16 cm approx. when complete. It is available on ivory evenweave or 16 count Aida.
Main elements of the design are pre drawn in water soluble ink.
Frame is for illustration purposes only.
. Evenweave 26 or 28 count or Aida 16 count fabric (approx 30 x 30cm)
. Chart and full instructions.
. Plenty of thread and high quality gold plated needle.
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.
