Needle Painting Blue Flax

Needle Painting Blue Flax

$11.62$42.61 USD

The Blue Flax is worked in needle painting also known as thread painting and long and short stitch. This is the most realistic form of surface embroidery which is worked in staggered straight stitches in a single strand of embroidery thread on a closely woven fabric, blending rows of colour to create a very realistic embroidery. The sheen of the threads adds to the soft effect of the petals and leaves.

The cheaper option is to purchase an extra piece of fabric with the Blue Flax design to practice the stitches. 

The Blue Flax is a beginners design, please visit the Needle Painting Information page for more information on needle painting and rating of the designs from easy to hard.

The Blue Flax is a beginners design, please visit the Needle Painting Information page for more information on needle painting and rating of the designs from easy to hard.

The fabric comes with the design printed on so you do not have to be concerned about transferring the design yourself and the threads come on a numbered thread template so you know exactly which colour to use on the embroidery.

In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 11 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions.

Needle painting can be challenging so I suggest learning the technique from one of my kits rather than from a book as you get much more instructions in my kit rather than a book which usually only has a few pages of instructions for one design.

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.

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.

$19.37 USD

You can purchase the Iris Applique pattern as a hard copy that will be mailed to you or PDF file that you can download.

I no longer sell a kit for the Iris Applique due to the man hours it takes to put a kit together.

The instructions have step-by-step diagrams for the different methods of sewing down the fabrics and for the surface embroidery stitches to embellish the design.
