Once you receive the kit you will transfer the design onto the taffeta fabric by tracing the design on with a pencil. You do not require a light box to see the design through the fabric.

I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 21 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on how to work each stitch which are reversible so that the back looks the same as the front.

Stitches include: Satin stitch, padded satin stitch, stem stitch, French knots and long and short stitch.

I display my 2-Sided Apple Blossoms in a 2-sided perspex table stand which I purchased from a craft store.

The 2-sided embroidery kits are great designs to improve your stitching skills and to impress your friends.

The Shadow Work Tree Frog is an intermediate surface embroidery technique.

The shadow work embroidery is made up of bands of herringbone stitch at the back of the fabric that show through at the front as a shadow of colour. The technique was traditionally used for table coverings as the stitching was on the back of the work so that it was protected from being snagged/damaged.

I have designed my shadow work embroideries as pieces of art. The tree frog looks lovely mounted between two window mat boards and hung from the corners like a mobile so that both sides of the embroidery can be seen.
