Materials Needed

Materials Included in the Kit

  • Square of Cotton

  • 6 inch wooden hoop

  • DMC Stranded Embroidery Cotton in 6 colours plus black

  • Size 8 Embroidery Needle

  • Fine Beading Needle

  • Assorted Beads

Additional Tools:

Transfer Pen


I recommend using Pilot Frixon pens to transfer your pattern. These allow for a high level of detail to be achieved when transferring and are removable with heat (although marks may reappear in extreme cold). Alternatively you can purchase a water soluble transfer pen from a craft store or use a regular ball point or pencil with the understanding that all markings will be permanent and need to be covered with floss.
