Squirrel Embroidery and Plush Kit - Kiriki Press

19.00

THIS IS A LEVEL 2 KIT. Please see descriptions of level 2 kits below to find your best fit.

Kiriki Press creates adorable animal plush kits that feature surface embroidery embellishments. Each finished doll is about 4.5 inches tall, meaning that the surface embroidery requires decent motor skills and eyesight or possibly magnification. We absolutely love these detailed kits for the challenge and generally recommend them for kids 12+. Please see our description of each level at the end of this.

Kit contains screen printed patterns and backing on cotton, embroidery floss, stuffing and instruction sheet. You will need a 6” embroidery hoop, fine embroidery needle and scissors.

LEVEL 1 - The easiest! Features 2 to 5 simple embroidery stitches. Think seed stitch, backstitch, chain (reverse chain), split. Suitable for complete beginners that are self motivated and enjoy smaller scale projects.

LEVEL 2 - A bit of a challenge. Some adventurous beginners may love this level as well. Be prepared to learn some basic stitches and a few lesser known ones. Doing a French or Colonial knot will be an important factor in almost all of these designs.

LEVEL 3 - A large jump up between levels. Be prepared to educate yourself on a variety of new stitches that will cover the majority of the surface, usually in very minute detail. We’d recommend finishing an easier kit before moving up.

LEVEL 3+ - This is a level added by us (not Kiriki) to denote the extra involved level 3 kits as there is a large jump. Level 3+ are kits that rely heavily on satin stitch or long and short stitch for shading, often using only one strand of 6-strand floss at a time to cover most of the surface area. Many people absolutely love this process and the stunning results but we want you to know what you are in for!

Product handmade from high quality local materials in Canada.

As someone who has completed kits from 1 to 3 levels, the challenges require some patience but are also fun and addicting.
