Do you just love giraffes and need one in your life? Or maybe this sweetie is the perfect addition for a nursery wall? It really doesn't matter because giraffes are amazing and why not embroider one yourself, right?
The floral stitches are easy but the giraffe itself has a little added complexity with the "thread painting" technique using long and short stitch. There is no video for this pattern but you may find it useful to check out some of my other thread painting videos on Youtube, like this one or this one if the technique is new to you.
Your kit includes: - 12 skeins of DMC embroidery floss - A piece of white cotton fabric, pre-printed with the design - One 5 inch wooden hoop for framing - 2 needles
The directions (two files) will be available to you for download after your purchase. The embroidery pattern includes: - Stitch and Color keys for the giraffe and florals - Suggested DMC embroidery floss colors - Full color close up photo of stitched pattern - PDF design sized for a 5 inch hoop
The beginner guide includes: - A supplies list with suggested products (hoops, needles, fabric, etc) based off of my experience - Helpful tips and tricks for transferring design, getting started, and finishing your project - Diagrams of stitches
This document is also available on my website HERE and includes videos for most stitches.
To complete this pattern you will also need: - Scissors
- You may want to invest in a high quality embroidery hoop if you have trouble maintaining tension with the included hoop. I bind my hoops with fabric or fabric tape to help, but you may find plastic, metal or high quality wood hoops easier to use. You can then use the wooden hoop included in the kit for framing your finished work.
