Remembrance Raised Work Poppy October 19, 2018 10:10

In honour of remembrance day I have developed a new hand embroidery kit, Raised Work Poppy, which is now available to buy from the Bluebird Embroidery online shop. £5 from each kit sale will be donated to the Royal British Legion.

I will also be teaching this design as a class at the Royal School of Needlework on the 4th November…/5026-raised-embroide…/

This simple design will introduce you to creating realistic shading using tent stitch in wool alongside couching and french knots. These are combined with raised work techniques to create a 3-dimensional wired petal which brings the beautiful poppy to life.

This kit includes all of the threads, fabrics and needles required to complete the design and the clear instruction booklet with step by step photographs will guide you easily through your project. The black aida background fabric is provided with the design already transferred on for you.

So why not give Raised Work embroidery a go while also donating towards this wonderful charity!
