If you are looking for owl wall art this embroidery kit is a great way to make your own! The owl embroidery template comes with a simple instruction booklet which teaches you the basics of embroidering paper& the simple stitches used.
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 person with no prior embroidery experience.
It is big in size but wont take over your life as the chunky wool makes it much faster to complete than a traditional embroidery project using silk threads and tiny stitches.
Read our blog post 'Make Your Own Embroidered Owl' and check out the video demonstrating how the owl wall art is made.
The piece of paper owl art is A3 in size and is printed on museum quality paper which has a watercolour like texture. The pressed astrantia flower branches are high definition, digitally printed images of pressed flowers, that look very real. The paper is soft and durable making embroidering the paper extremely relaxing. 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 owl sewing kit 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 rectangular patterns, a fan pattern and an extremely fun turkey stitch to make the fringed eyes.
