This is a fun design to pass away some time.

If you have never done counted work then you may want to work the embroidery on 14 or 16 count Aida as the fabric is the easiest to work the patterns on.

The design looks great in colour and variegated embroidery thread if you are not partial to black. Approximately 8 meters of a 6 strand embroidery thread is required for the embroidery.

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.
