Seahorse Blackwork Kit - UK ONLY

Cute seahorse in rusty reds
X

Description

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.

Fair Usage Policy:
You may use this design in its entirety or as elements to create a larger work. We do allow commercial use of our designs as long as the projects are hand made and that you acknowledge the Maire Curtis studio as the original source of the design.

Craft kit
- - #32012

This kit arrived earlier this week and is nicely packaged and has everything needed to make the item.
The instructions look clear and the end product looks like it will be beautiful (depending on my skill!).
The only reason I didn't give this 'excellent' is due to the fact that there's no print out for the stitches required, I'm going to look them up on YouTube as I think I know what I'm doing, but a simple print out showing how to do these stitches would be useful for others.
Overall, I'd buy this kit again, or another kit from the same maker.

Response from Maire Curtis Lakeland Studio:

Hello Louise,
Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you are pleased with your kit.
I have noted your comment about the stitch guide but we do state that prior knowledge of the stitches is required so I will attempt to make this clearer on the item description.
Many thanks and happy stitching.
Maire.
