I'm addicted! This is my fourth Stitched Stories kit and I'm about 75% done. Stitching is so relaxing, downright meditative, really. These kits offer lovely designs and great colors. -Diana Stutzman
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Create, Play, Read gives you 3 patterns designed with layered and themed motifs. You'll use a dozen classic hand embroidery stitches to render a big variety of school, creative, and play-themed motifs. Whether you're stitching a globe, yarn with knitting needles or a sandcastle--this is work that feels very much like a modern sampler. Take it motif by motif to enjoy a variety of little projects.

You'll get 3 patterns printed to cotton in color, ready to stitch, no transfer needed.

Also included is a four-page, illustrated stitching guide.

You will need your own needle, 8" embroidery hoop, and embroidery floss to complete each project.

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.

I see the option to add on scissors and needle minder. Do I need them?

You don't need a needle minder. It's simply a nice extra: it attaches to your work in progress with a magnet and will hold your needle when you need to put it down. 

You will need scissors, but any scissors that you have already will also work. Our scissors are the right size for fitting into the storage tin that comes with each kit, and I like having a few pairs for my my many works in progress.

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.

ABOUT

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.

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