While away an hour or so making with this dog embroidery kit. It comes with a clear and straightforward instruction leaflet which teaches you how to stitch the paper hound. It's 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 dog-shaped finish.

It's the perfect starter project for anybody wanting to learn paper embroidery or a quick cute gift for a more experienced embroiderer. Who doesn't love embroidered dogs?

This dog craft kit is A5 in size and uses eco-friendly, quality hemp paper, which has a watercolour-like appearance. The paper, digitally printed with images of dried pressed flowers, looks natural. The paper is soft and durable, making stitching the paper extremely therapeutic. As it's worked all in grey, it also allows for a lovely rhythm of stitching without lots of stopping, starting and re-threading of the needle, making it the perfect starter kit for beginner embroiderers.

Each embroidery kit is wrapped in tissue paper and presented boxed, branded with the product image on the front, making it ready for gifting.

Embroidery Stitches

This embroidered dog uses a basic satin stitch in long and short stitches.

DISPLAYING YOUR ARTWORK

For slightly three-dimensional work like this dog, I love to frame with a double mount to give a sophisticated finish. I also love a more casual framing approach to framing embroidery, like using a vintage trouser hanger or magnetic frame.
