Island Wools

Otterly Adorable Embroidery Kit

Sold out.

Who doesn't love a good otter pun? These two cuties are a great introduction to using long and short stitch for filling furry mammals. Plus they are circled by a fun kelp wreath, featuring bright starfish and delicious sea urchins. Stitch the pattern as written, using long and short stitch to fill the otters, or modify it and only stitch the outlines to transform it into an easy beginner's pattern. This pattern is suitable for beginners but also fun for experienced stitchers, plus you can follow along with me on Youtube for a one hour video tutorial.

Your kit includes:

  • Fabric stamped with the design
  • A 7 inch beechwood hand embroidery hoop
  • Four hand embroidery needles (size 3 and size 5)
  • Ten skeins of six-stranded cotton embroidery floss, including one variegated color
  • Color printed instructions for stitching the pattern
  • A copy of the Beginner Guide

Your purchase includes the Otterly Adorable embroidery pattern and a copy of the beginner guide. The embroidery pattern includes written instructions and suggested stitch order, stitch and color keys, a color close up photo of the completed embroidery art and a link to the online video tutorial.

The beginner guide includes a supplies list with suggested products based off of my experience, tips on how to get started, including pattern transfer suggestions for future projects, plus diagrams of stitches. The beginner guide can also be found online here with helpful videos, plus you can find some additional tutorials here

The kit does not include hand embroidery scissors but we do offer a selection
