The techniques include: Trailing, Feathered Chain Stitch, how to accurately measure and cut card for box making, two methods for covering card, using curved needles and how to stitch together your box pieces.
The kit includes: All the fabric you will need to cover the box, a skein of DMC Blanc and ball of Blanc Perle 12, Nottingham lace, Sewing thread for construction, mount board, an A4 cutting mat, craft knife, steel ruler and set square, a reel of double sided sticky tape, pencil, pins, wool felt for padding, a water soluble pen for transferring your monogram letter and full written instructions.
