A lovely little blackwork seahorse surveys his world from a shadow of cross stitch coral both worked in DMC Colour Variations threads. Second in our series of marine designs which we have created for blackwork and cross stitch. Blackwork is very similar to cross stitch but works much faster due to the stitches covering a larger area. This piece could easily be completed in a weekend. With concise instructions, this kit makes a mini course in its own right. The seahorse is completed using a blackwork filling stitch design in a vibrant rusty red. A delicate background of coral is created using cross stitch. The kit comes complete with everything needed to complete the design which measures 13 x 13 cm approx. when complete. It is available on Antique White 28 count evenweave or 16 count Aida with the main elements of the design pre drawn in water soluble ink. Basic skills required: You will need to know how to do basic sewing stitches and understand the use of counted thread fabrics. Frame is for illustration purposes only.
