Try This – Embroidery Kit

My July “Try This ” posts will feature kits.  I don’t buy a lot of kits, but every once in a while I see something tempting.  Dimensions has a line of these cute little kits, and I’ve wanted to try one.

The kit includes printed background fabric and shapes, die cut felt shapes, cotton thread, a needle and instructions.

This is a nice kit for any skill level.  The instructions are clear, well illustrated and easy to follow.

It uses four stitches…the back stitch, the running stitch, the buttonhole stitch and the french knot. 

The only thing I didn’t like was that the printed background and the printed shapes were on aida cloth, which has a loose weave and is often used for counted cross stitch.  I found it frayed easily and was difficult to sew through.

I easily finished this kit in an evening.  It is bright, cute and has a lot of interesting texture.
