The Crewel Sea
Inspired by a visit to the spectacular Isle of Man, one of the latest embroidery designs from Dizzy & Creative uses crewelwork techniques to convey the might of the sea and the majesty of a lighthouse. The kit comes complete with the outline design printed to a quality linen fabric, DMC threads, needles, fully illustrated stitch guidance plus a stitch library where every stitch used is set out step by step for both right and left handed stitchers – a feature of all Dizzy & Creative kits.
(Design ref. 21015 - £42. The finished panel measures 45cm x 45cm)
'Norman' is from the Dizzy & Creative 'Embroidery in 2-Stitch Step' range. Each kit in this range uses just two stitches to create a fun design using many stitch combinations, enabling the stitcher to build a stitch repertoire in easy stages. The kits are perfect for anyone learning to stitch, exploring new stitches or experienced stitchers who want the occasional light project for fun. Perfect gifts, handbag size to take on holiday or have on the go during your lunch hour! The finished panels can be re-used in projects such as cushions or quilts, or simply mounted as wall art. Each stitch used is set out step by step for both right- and left-handed stitchers. Norman uses Chain Stitch and Buttonhole Stitch, and the kit comes with the colour design printed on quality cotton, DMC threads, needle, practice fabric and clear step by step instruction.
(Design ref. 20040 - £12. The finished panel measures 20cm X 20cm)
