This complete embroidery kit gives you everything you need--even if you're brand new to embroidery.

"Formal Garden" is a stitched story of mazes and flowers, or order in the natural world. You'll use ten classic embroidery stitches to render a golden central foundtain and the symmetrical quadrants surrounding it. The finished piece looks wonderful in den, living area, or kitchen.

Cotton fabric with design pre-printed in color

6 full skeins of coordinated DMC Embroidery Floss

2 embroidery needles

5.5" tin for organizing your supplies

Easy-to-follow illustrated instructions

This embroidery pattern and kit is designed by Debbie Hodge and is for your personal use only. Patterns may not be reproduced or shared. 2021 Debbie Hodge, Stitched Stories.

THIS HOOP'S STORY

This is a stitched story of symmetry and mazes and flowers. It’s order in the wild. It’s both puzzle and pleasure. Where do you prefer bringing order to your own world (and when do you allow a little chaos)? And what sits--like this golden fountain--at the center of the mazes and gardens in your life?

Every Stitched Stories kit includes a variety of stitches and motifs. There are small scenes you can complete in a sitting, all of them coming together in the finished project. Immerse yourself in the imagery, color, and classic embroidery stitches. Recall your life’s past stories and consider the new ones possible. 

FAQs

Can I do this if I've never embroidered?

Yes. All the instructions you'll need are included. If you've never handled a needle and thread, it might take a while to get comfortable. Take your time, keep your thread length under 18", and just be sure you're not tangling things and that you're pulling the thread all the way through. Once you've got this rhythm established with simple straight stitches, you can keep adding to the stitches you've mastered. The stitching guides actually tell you which stitches to start with on a design if you're new to embroidery.

What can I do with my finished project?

You can finish it in the hoop and hang it or get a frame with a circular cutout and glass cover. My favorite thing to do is to finish the design in a nicer hoop and then display on plate stand or small easel. I add it to styled vignettes around my house.

Will the printed pattern wash out?

No. You may wash your finished project but the printed design will not wash away.

What's the difference between kits and fabric prints?

The kits include not only the fabric print but also floss, needles, a storage tin, and hoop. The fabric prints include just the fabric print and the stitching guide. You will need to supply hoop, needles, and floss.

Addicted to these kits

I now own 5 different kits and 1 duplicate (on purpose). I have not done embroidery in ages (life got in the way). Retirement / Pandemic hit and wanted to start up my hobby again. These are perfect to beginners or intermediate skills and great at refreshing my memory on the stitches. I am addicted to these kits. Love the folksy style little tins for grab and go.

I love my kit

To be honest, I purchased this kit simply for the tin. I love the idea of how compact it is for transporting on-the-go. The design is super cute and the thread colors chosen for the project are perfect. I can't wait to display this on my wall. Or give as a gift for Mother's Day.

These two kits just arrived in the mail and are so beautiful! The patterns are well printed and the packaging is so sweet and includes everything. I can't wait to dive in! Will definitely be back for more!
