Feeling magical? Have fun with this sweet little unicorn project, suitable for beginners and also stitchers with experience. The mane and tail are filled with long and short stitch (or really you can just call it split stitch) and the pattern does call for some work with metallic floss. BUT, you can do it! The project fits in a 5 inch hoop so it will stitch up quick. The printed fabric includes the blue background so you wont have to worry about pulling out your paints to create the look of the original pictured embroidery. But if you'd like to get extra crafty you can always paint your hoop blue like I did for a fun sparkly finish.
Your kit includes:
- Fabric pre-stamped with the full color design (not just a line drawing). Please see photos. The image is printed to replicate the hand painted back ground in the original embroidery. - 5 inch wooden embroidery hoop for framing - 7 full skeins of DMC embroidery floss - a length of Lecien Nishikitto metallic floss - 2 embroidery needles
In addition, the directions (two files) will be available to you for download after your purchase.
The embroidery pattern includes: - Stitch and color keys - Shopping list with suggested DMC embroidery floss colors - Full color photo of stitched pattern - PDF design sized for a 5 inch or larger hoop ready to print (shrink or enlarge to meet your needs)
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

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.
