Hand Embroidery Kit of my Dreams embroidery design, only 2 stitches to learn, so perfect for a beginner to learn to embroider and create a modern piece of DIY floral hoop art.
I watched the film Suffragette and saw that one of the books they read was called “Dreams” by Olive Schreiner. The quote used in the film is this “The woman wanderer goes forth on the path towards freedom.” She wonders, “I am alone, utterly alone. Why do I go to this far land?” And reason says to her, “Silence, what do you hear?” Thousands, and they beat this way…Feet of those who follow you. Lead on.” I loved the film and this would make a lovely embroidery design for anyone who feels the same way.
The embroidery design looks complicated but it is an easy needlepoint pattern to stitch, using mainly satin stitch.
As with all our kits the design is printed straight onto the fabric so there is no need to transfer it or do any tracing of the embroidery pattern. The kit comes in a cotton drawstring project bag which can be used again and again. You could even embroider the bag or use it as a practice run. Each kit contains all you need to complete your embroidery project and create a contemporary piece of hoop art.
