Swallow & Blooms Embroidery Kit - mini hoop art


Create your own piece of hoop art with this modern embroidery kit.
The kit contains a fabric swatch with a modern vintage design of a swallow swooping among the flowers. Add embroidery to the flowers to create a lovely effect of texture and contrast with the swallow emerging from the negative space.
This 4" design is the perfect sized project to pop in your bag or pocket and take along with you to stitch while you commute to work, holiday by the pool, or watch your kids play in the park! (I'm sure you can think of plenty more 'stitch on the go' opportunities!)
