Tropical Paradise Embroidery Kit

Tropical Paradise Embroidery Kit

Regular price $45.00 $42.00 Sale

Celebrate summer with this gorgeous design featuring my favorite tropical flowers on a wreath of tropical plant leaves.

This hand embroidery kit is available in two options:
1. Double hoop style.  Your kit includes 2 hoops (9 inch, 4 inch) and a light, dusty green linen fabric.  You must transfer the design yourself. This style is included in the photographs.
2.  Regular hoop style.  Your kit includes 1 hoop (9 inch) and green cotton fabric pre-stamped with the design.

ANOTHER OPTION: I am now offering the pattern pre-printed on Sulky's Stick 'n Stitch as an add-on for double hoops. Transferring the pattern to the fabric can be challenging but this sticky stabilizer can make the job easier. Note: stitching through the stabilizer will feel different and can make your needle sticky! Please weigh the risks and benefits for you. 


All kits also include:

  • 19 full skeins of DMC embroidery floss 
  • 2 embroidery needles 

The directions will be available to you for download after your purchase - please check your email for your download link.  If you'd like hard copies of the files included with your kit please select the option above.

The embroidery pattern includes:
- Stitch keys, stitch direction keys, and color keys (with suggested DMC colors) for all elements of the design
- Full color close up photos of stitched pattern
- PDF design sized for a 9 inch hoop ready to print
- Double hoop assembly guide


The beginner guide includes:
- A supplies list with suggested products based off of my experience
- How to get started
- Helpful tips and tricks
- Diagrams of stitches

The beginner guide can also be found online HERE plus you can find some additional tutorials HERE 

To complete the project you will also need:

  • Scissors (embroidery and fabric)
  • Wood stain and varnish if you choose to treat your natural wooden hoops
  • a pen or tool for tracing the design (double hoop kit)
  • Glue for finishing (Aleene's, hot glue gun, etc)

There is a short video tutorial currently (6/1/18) available for this pattern demonstrating how to stitch the plumeria flowers using long and short stitch. The Anemones and Succulents video tutorial is also a great resource for long and short stitch direction. Here you can find my videos: YouTube Channel  

This pattern is for personal use only. Please do not copy or resell finished product.


Happy Stitching,
Jessica
