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) printed with design, DMC pearl cotton threads in both size 3 and size 5, written and illustrated instructions. The kit also includes everything you need to created the raised berries including: red cotton fabric, embroidery floss, glass beads, and beading needle.

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.
