Stitch your own beautiful cottage garden with this relaxing Cottage Garden Embroidery Kit by Beaks and Bobbins. The design includes elegant delphiniums, colourful larkspurs, and a pretty pink anemone against a fresh and summery pre-printed background.


The kit gives you the chance to learn and practice an interesting variety of stitches including split stitch, chain stitch, back stitch, and couching. You can also dip your toes into silk ribbon embroidery, learning how to create the delphiniums by using the silk ribbon to create loose French Knots. You will also be guided through the process of adding a subtle sparkle to your work by using seed beads to anchor down delicate sequins and incorporating fine gold thread into your stitches.


If you are new to stitching don’t worry as the illustrated Stitch Glossary is there to guide you through each stitch step by step.


The kits are designed to give you a relaxing stitching experience where you can enjoy some ‘me time’ and lose yourself in the process- with the bonus of having something beautiful at the end of it, which you can continue to enjoy. The design is pre-printed onto the fabric so there is no need for tracing, and everything you need is included leaving you all ready to get stitching!

Cottage Garden Embroidery Kit by Beaks and Bobbins

  •  Beaks and Bobbins is a family business based in North Yorkshire.

    They create original illustrative embroideries using layered collages of torn and cut fabrics which are then stitched into using stranded cottons, silks, and textured yarns.

    They started by using the embroideries as designs to print greeting cards and fabric. However, after feedback from their customers wanting to stitch the designs themselves, they started to develop a steadily increasing range of kits.

    Their designs are inspired by nature and they endeavour to do as much as we can to protect it by using organic fabrics.
