UK Postage Only. In this kit, you have everything you need to make a stunning 9 paged concertina booklet of gorgeous stitchery snippets, all in neutral colours that blend beautifully together. The 9 stitched “pages” are stitched separately and once completed, are then attached to a beautiful concertina book and folded up like a magical, mysterious little book of delights. There are no templates to use, just pictures and instructions to follow. The designs are already drawn onto the fabric. The DMC threads are in 6 main colours and you may choose where to use each colour or just match them to the pictures. I do hope you enjoy receiving this little package- it comes beautifully wrapped with all the care and attention you deserve! I always do a little happy dance every time I pop a kit into the letterbox and like to think that you do the same when it arrives on your doorstep. The little concertina book when opened up flat, measures roughly 68cm x 12cm. Please note -Fabrics and lace may differ slightly from those shown depending on availability but will be very similar.
