Inspired by Boucherouite rugs from Morocco, this versatile abstract embroidery design layers several simple stitches to create a painterly effect on cloth. The result is a colorful, textured piece that will hang beautifully on a wall.
This kit accommodates the needs of adventurous beginners and more advanced embroiderers. Once you have practiced the stitches, it is 80% easy, relaxing embroidery, and then 20% of it requires a little more creative thinking (this is the free form middle section). It is a really fun project if you are up to a little challenge.
Stitches: Satin Stitch, Lazy Daisy Stitch, Straight Stitch, Bullion Knots
The sampler measures approximately 4.25” x 6.25” and fits into a standard 5” x 7” frame (frame/mat not included).
