This beginner-friendly kit includes all the supplies and instructions you’ll need to complete the Layered Leaves, Weeds, and Grass hand embroidery project, which features layered leaves, weeds, and grass in a pale pink pot surrounded by simple butterflies.
The Layered Leaves, Weeds, and Grass Hand Embroidery Kit includes the following supplies:
a pair of blue embroidery scissors with large rounded handles from Kelmscott Designs, packaged in a simple burlap bag*;
two embroidery needles, which come to you on a small cut of fabric for easy storage as you stitch your project;
my favorite metal needle threader, making threading your needles that much easier (especially if you’re brand new to embroidery!);
a large enough cut of Kona cotton fabric in the color “roasted pecan” for you to either use a full two layers of your fabric when stitching the project, start over on your project should you make a mistake you’d prefer not to “fix,” or save for later projects of your own (whatever works best for you!);
four inch bamboo embroidery hoop;
four full skeins of Sublime stitching cotton embroidery floss, with plenty leftover for mistakes, re-stitching your project on different fabrics for friends and family, or for any other projects you might stitch at a later date; and
your pattern for transfer pre printed for you onto cardstock and a white water-erasable fabric pen for transferring your design to fabric.
* Before checking out, you'll need to choose whether you want a box with or without this month's scissors, which will change the price accordingly (e.g., if you get a box without scissors, it's less expensive than the full box).
The Layered Leaves, Weeds, and Grass Hand Embroidery Kit also includes this project’s seven-page digital pattern, delivered electronically* as a PDF file, which includes the link to your project’s step-by-step video tutorial on the very first page.
In this full-length video tutorial, I take you through the entire project from start to finish. This thorough step-by-step video serves as a type of “virtual course,” and includes easy to follow instruction on:
how to prepare your hoop, floss, needles, and fabric for stitching;
how to start and end your floss;
how to stitch each portion of the project itself; and
how to easily back (or finish) your final project.
This video is filmed with the total and complete beginner in mind, meaning I film this as though I’m teaching somebody who has never picked up an embroidery hoop in their life!
That said, you can choose to use this video in whatever way works best for you. For example, most beginners prefer to watch the entire video from start to finish, pausing and re-watching portions of the video as they go. People with more stitching experience prefer to watch the video on an as-needed basis, only watching the portions of the video that include information they haven’t previously learned. Finally, more advanced stitchers might forego the video altogether, relying instead on the pattern itself to guide them toward finishing their piece.
*When your kit ships, you'll receive a tracking number for your physical box as well as an email from me with the digital portion of your kit (which includes the link to this project's video tutorial). Please be sure to keep an eye out for that email, and contact me as soon as possible should you need it to go to an email address other than the one you'll provide at checkout.
The Layered Leaves, Weeds, and Grass Hand Embroidery Project was originally released to Hopebroidery Box subscribers in September 2023. Purchasing the kit from this listing will NOT sign you up for the monthly subscription; in fact, the Hopebroidery Box is processed through an entirely different site! For more information about my monthly hand embroidery subscription box (as seen in Teen Vogue, Buzzfeed, USA Today, and many other outlets!), visit the Hopebroidery Box information page!
I can't wait to see what you make!
Should you have any questions before purchasing this kit for yourself or a loved one, or should you or your gift recipient have any questions whatsoever while working on the kit itself, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly via email – I am more than happy to help!
