The Chipmunks are 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 and life like appearance of the fur.
The Chipmunks are an advanced 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 drawn on so you do not have to be concerned about transferring the design yourself and the threads come on numbered thread templates so you know exactly which colour to use on the embroidery. There are 25 DMC cotton thread colours used in the embroidery.
In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 30 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.
