Gnomework DIY Embroidery Kit
Don't be fooled by the name "Gnomework", this friendly, forest dwelling fellow is all play. Surrounded by modern, abstract mushrooms, he's right at home in a poplar forest. The gnome and woodland scene is made using a series of beginner embroidery stitches, including a backstitch (he's mostly backstitch...easy peasy), detached chain (link) for his beard, satin stitch, and two French knots for eyes. BTW The satin stitch is edged with a backstitch because it looks great AND hides any imperfections so you always look like a pro. It's like magic!
LEVEL: Ambitious Beginner/First Time Friendly
Choose to incorporate lots of links (detached chain) or simply use a single stitch for a very first-time friendly design.
