Use this pattern to add our designs to your own tea towels, tote bags and other fabric projects.

This pattern is printed in black and white to Sulky brand sticky-backed water-soluble fabric. You'll trim the design, peel away backing, stick to your project and embroider. When done, soak in warm water, and the pattern will dissolve.

You will need your own fabric, needle, embroidery hoop, and embroidery floss to complete this project. Recommended DMC floss colors are below.

If you'd like the FULL kit with floss, hoop, needles, minder and tin, click here.

Honor the desire to create and the love of making something from your own ideas and a few raw materials with this embroidery pattern. You'll use 10 classic embroidery stitches to render a dozen layered motifs. This finished project is perfect for a studio, craft room, or anywhere your making happens.

 

INCLUDED
  • 8.5" x 11" sheet of sticky-backed water-soluble fabric with design printed in black and white and measuring between 7" and 8" wide
  • Four-page illustrated stitching guide with color image of finished project, stitching diagram and color key, stitching tips, stitch how-tos

THIS HOOP'S STORY

The act of creating--whether in words, melody, paint, textiles, or another medium--results in something new brought into the world. Stitch a creator’s mind aswirl with possibilities. There are concrete images (yarn and needles, hoop, pen and brushes) as well as the abstract butterfly symbolizing change and transformation. As you embroider this piece, be sure to hold space in your own mind for all that you’ve transformed from initial raw idea or raw materials in the past as well as all that you’ll create in the future.


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.

Love it. Arrived quickly and I can't wait to start this one.

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.
