and what you will learn to make, step-by-step, in Box Full of Lessons 14 ♥
Click on the image
The step-by-step instructions (written by Di van Niekerk) and detailed photography will teach you how to make a gorgeous three-dimensional pot of life-like Cosmos stems, buds, flowers and leaves.
You will learn how to create a fabulous richly textured pot from leather (included in the kit) and how to fill it with beautiful moss – a lovely trick to learn for future projects!
Easy to make and the close-up photographs will teach you step-by-step in close-up detail…
The completed piece… suitable for the beginner to this art form!
This beautiful new kit contains:
1. The embroidery panel with the image in full colour, which is approximately 15 cm x 13 cm / 6″ x 5″, printed onto a large 100% cotton (heirloom quality) cloth – ready to embroider.
Note: This is a small design that measures 15 cm x 13 cm / 6″ x 5″ so it does not take long to make.
PLUS you will receive an extra piece of linen fabric in a soft neutral tone for you to trace the line drawing provided. This is in case you prefer to work on a soft, natural shade of linen fabric. This way you will have two different backgrounds to choose from in your kit.
2. The step-by-step lessons are in full colour, written by Di van Niekerk, with close-up photography on every page. This you will receive on a CD so you can zoom in on the photos in close detail. If you do not have a CD slot, let us know and we will send you the downloadable lesson or we can print the book for you.
3. Detailed colour pictures of the embroidered design will guide you well.
4. The stitch diagrams
