Beginners Smocking Kit to Create a Postcard Sampler, Red and Green, P7

Beginners Smocking Kit to Create a Postcard Sampler, Red and Green, P7
£10.00 1 Available
Love this


This is a comprehensive kit designed as an introduction to smocking and suitable for complete beginners. It would appeal to all textile enthusiasts and is a small, easily completed project.
The finished postcard measures 6 x 4 " and can be written and posted if desired!
The kit contains:
a piece of red coloured fabric for the postcard background,
some pre-gathered pale green coloured fabric for smocking,
pre-cut stiffening,
a calico backing stitched as a postcard,
a selection of suitable embroidery threads,
a crewel needle,
light yellow accent fabrics,
coordinating beads,
2 sheets of clear instructions, including images of examples.
You will need a basic sewing kit to complete the postcard and a sewing machine is desirable, but not essential. If desired you may also like to incorporate some of your own threads, fabric or trimmings.


Following the success of smocked post card making workshops, I have developed this kit to allow more enthusiasts to have a go at smocking themselves.
