The Introductory to Blackwork – Small Blackwork Butterfly design is a Level 1: Beginners of my Further Education kits in which you have the option of purchasing the 3 PDF files with colour work-in-progress pictures of the entire stitching process on my butterfly that I provide when I run my on-line classes.

The butterfly is a counted form of hand embroidery in which interesting blackwork patterns are worked on the wings, body and flowers and then areas outlined with pearl purl and stem stitch.

The design is worked from a hard copy instruction booklet which has 21 pages of step by step numbered charts and the option of getting the three PDF files with work-in-progress photos of the butterfly. Each PDF file is at least 29 pages long with over 50 pictures and instructions in each PDF file.

Once you receive the kit you will transfer the outline of the design onto the counted fabric in the tissue paper transfer method by tracing the outline onto a piece of tissue paper, pinning the tissue paper to the fabric and then working a basting stitch (tacked line) along all the design lines. The tissue paper is ripped away leaving tacked design lines on the fabric and then you work the blackwork patterns with-in the tacked design lines. The tacking is removed once the embroidery is complete.

This is a much more fun and easier method than working the pattern directly from a set chart as there is more versatility where each pattern can be worked so is less complicated to work. Each blackwork butterfly will come out slightly different making the butterfly unique to you and you will have a piece of stitched art that you you will be proud of.

I provide a detailed instruction booklet in the kit with lots of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on how to work the tacking, each blackwork pattern and the outlines on the butterfly. The PDF files combined with the instructions will give you a well rounded learning in the technique but the PDF files are not essential to work the butterfly.

See the photo gallery pictures for some examples of sections of the PDF files.

The small blackwork butterfly can be worked on 14 or 16 or 28 count or 32 count fabric. I recommend working the design on 28 count or 32 count if you plan to work some of my other designs. A stitching light and magnification are an asset to work the embroidery.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.


Description of Fabric Types:

The count of a fabric is the amount of threads there are per inch of the fabric. The more threads there are per inch the harder it will be to see the holes in the fabric. The 28 and 32 count fabrics have a softer feel and look compared to the 14 and 16 count Aida fabric

  • 14 Count and 16 Count Aida Fabric: 100% Cotton. The fabric has even weave threads (all threads are the same thickness). 14 count is the easiest fabric to count for absolute beginners in counted embroidery or for those who have difficulties seeing 28 or 32 count fabric.
  • 28 Count Lugana: 52% cotton and 48% Rayon. The fabric has even weave threads (all threads are the same thickness). The patterns come out more even on the even weave fabric compared to the linen fabric.
  • 28 Count Cashel Linen: 100% Linen. The fabric has uneven weave threads (threads are different thicknesses) giving a natural look.
  • 32 Count Lugana: 52% cotton and 48% Rayon. The fabric has even weave threads (all threads are the same thickness). The patterns come out more even on the even weave fabric compared to the linen fabric.
  • 32 Count Belfast Linen: 100% Linen. The fabric has uneven weave threads (threads are different thicknesses) giving a natural look.
