Designed by Cathy, the Rooster is worked in the stitch of the Bayeux tapestry with pure silk hand-dyed threads on silk dupion. 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 the silk for you
Together with an online YouTube tutorial, the kit includes silk threads, silk dupion with the design pre-printed, backing calico, crewel needle, straw needle, colour photograph, full instructions, and stitch key.
To complete the project you will need an 8" embroidery hoop, embroidery and fabric scissors.
