Designed for embroidery by Cathy from a stained glass window by Alphonse Mucha, the spectacle case is worked with pure silk hand-dyed threads and backed with contrasting wool herringbone fabric. Bayeux stitch is so named because it is the stitch of the famous Bayeux Tapestry. It is a simple stitch to learn and very suitable for beginners, with only three basic stitches. The design will be pre-printed onto calico for you.
Together with an online YouTube tutorial, the kit includes silk threads, calico 10" x 10" with the design pre-printed, muslin, wool herringbone fabric, lining fabric, crewel needle, colour photograph, full instructions, and stitch key.
To complete the project you will need an 8" embroidery hoop, embroidery and fabric scissors, and matching cotton thread to make up the case.
Postage and packing for destinations within the UK is included in the price. Please contact me for a price if you are outside the UK.
If you are buying as a gift, the kit and tutorial can be sent direct to the recipient at a time of your choice if details are supplied in the notes/comments box when completing your purchase.
