The Apple Blossoms are a 2-sided hand embroidery technique. The design is worked in surface embroidery stitches on a taffeta fabric using DMC No. 8 Perle cotton thread. In the kit there are two apple blossom designs and two pieces of taffeta fabric so that you can work both designs.

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.
