Under The Sea Blackwork Kit - UK Postage Only



This counted blackwork Under the Sea embroidery kit features some lovely DMC Colour Variations threads and just a hint of gold. A great introduction to blackwork embroidery complete with chart and full instructions, it forms a mini course in its own right. This is the first in a 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. Each area of the anchor, shell and sea horse is worked in a different blackwork stitch with another stitch used to create the impression of water. Blending the threads creates a subtle variation in colour and the piece is finished with a lovely metallic thread for the broken anchor chain. The kit comes complete with everything needed to complete the design which measures 17 x 16 cm approx. when complete. It is available on Antique white 28 count evenweave or 16 count Aida. Main elements of the design are pre drawn in water soluble ink. Frame is for illustration purposes only.
