Iris Flower Embroidery

The Iris Embroidery Kit is a great way to create your own floral wall art DIY style.  This simple floral themed artwork kit comes with a a simple instruction booklet which teaches you how to stitch on paper, the simple stitches used for the embroidered basket and where to start in making this iris embroidery kit.  It's a bit like doing dot-to-dot but with wool rather than a pencil, with the precise placement of the dots on the printed paper making it easy to achieve a beautiful finish.   It is suitable for a complete novice as everything is fully explained for a beginner embroiderer.

The iris flower embroidery is A3 in size and is printed on museum quality paper which has a watercolour like texture.  The pressed iris, pressed bluebells, pressed aquilegia and pressed catmint stems are high definition, digitally printed images of pressed flowers, that look very real.  The paper is soft and durable making stitching the paper extremely therapeutic.  As it’s worked all in one colour it also allows for a lovely rhythm of stitching without lots of stopping and starting.

Each embroidery kit is wrapped in tissue paper and presented in a hard backed envelope, branded with the product image, making it ready for gifting.

SIMPLE STITCHES FOR EMBROIDERING PAPER

This iris flower embroidery uses a range of embroidery stitches.  A woven wheel stitch sometimes known as ‘rose stitch’, ‘woven wheel stitch’ or ‘wagon wheel stitch’.  A simple backstitch worked in square patterns and fan pattern.

DISPLAYING YOUR ARTWORK

For slightly three dimensional work like this iris hand embroidery, I love to frame with a double mount to give a sophisticated finish.  This is not included.
