The Purple Icicle Pansy 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 pansy that I provide when I run my on-line classes. I highly recommend working this design prior to any of my needle painting designs to give you a good foundation in long and short stitch.

The Purple Icicle Pansy 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.

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 hand drawn on so you do not have to be concerned about transferring the design yourself and the silk threads come on a numbered thread template so you know exactly which colour to use on the embroidery.

For the pansy design there is the option of working the embroidery in DMC embroidery cotton threads on cream Southern Belle cotton Muslin fabric or with Needle Point silk threads on silk Shantung fabric. There are 9 colours used in the embroidery.

The pansy in the pictures is worked in DMC embroidery cotton threads on cotton fabric.

In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 17 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions. The 3 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 pansy.

The last few pictures in the picture gallery show some of the pages in the PDF files.

PDF #1 has 28 pages, PDF #2 has 19 pages and PDF #3 has 18 pages of pictures and instructions. The 3 PDF files are emailed and the kit with instructions are mailed……sorry I do not email the instruction booklet for the pansy.

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.
