Hook Line + TInker
"Release the Kraken" Embroidery Kit
A legendary sea monster feared by those who dared to sail the seas, the Kraken's tentacles make for some fun stitching. After all, maybe he just likes to give hugs? All of the stitches are basic, introductory embroidery stitches (you can do it!). Made mostly using single stitches and the backstitch (easy peasy!), suckers are made using a detached chain (link) and an (optional) chain stitch round out a dynamic design full of movement and texture.
Your friends and family will undoubtedly be very impressed by your finished creation. Be prepared for adulation - and possibly a little envy too. (You deserve it!)
=> Included in the kit:
• pre-printed pattern on unbleached cotton fabric
• 15cm (6") bamboo embroidery hoop
• embroidery floss
• embroidery needle
• stitch guide
All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original made by Laurie. Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The pattern evolves with each hand rendering with attention to texture and technique. Through this process, instructions for completing each design are developed. The 100% cotton fabric is cut and prepared by hand, and all finalized patterns are printed onto the fabric in the studio using inks that maintain their integrity during the stitching process. Each kit is packed by hand. Packaging is designed to be lightweight and compact to reduce environmental impacts via shipping, and paper, including recycled paper, have been used rather than single use plastics.
