NEW FOR 2019!!!- This listing is for an embroidery kit to make the Strawberry Thief pillow to finish at 14" by 18".

Kit comes complete with linen (plum or natural) hand silk printed with design, DMC pearl cotton threads in both size 3 and size 5, written and illustrated instructions with lots of photos. This is special in that there is a kit within this kit - yes a separate pouch includes materials to work the berries and includes: red cotton fabric, embroidery floss, quality glass beads, beading needle and threader.  It is a lot of fun and more simple that it seems.

Introduced in 1883 as a wallpaper design, William Morris' Strawberry Thief has been adapted here in hand embroidery, and includes "berries" worked in Stumpwork, which is raised 3D elements that are worked on a separate background, cut out and hand sewn to the final piece. The berries are worked entirely in French knots and also include glass beads for highlights. Shown here in a linen base of muted plum and thread colors of burgundy, pale rose, nutmeg, green, ecru and taupe create a pleasing palette. Also available on natural linen background if you prefer.
