Simple Stitches GuideSimple Stitches Guide
Our price: £1.00

This is indeed a simple guide, designed and drawn by the Tart, showing you how to make running stitch, back stitch, whipped versions, chain, seed and blanket stitches. There are simple hand drawn diagrams and text descriptions.

If you are ordering a stitchery kit, one of these is included.

If you would like one on its own, or an additional one for a friend, pop one in your basket!

Size: 148mm x 210mm, firm card, printed both sides

NOTE: the real version does not have The Border Tart repeated across the guide, of course. I am just protecting my property!

Saturday still life with stitches
The slow slow development of a new kit.
Because I’m worth it!
I do plan to share, though
We kept hens for years and years but left our wee flock with the new owners when we moved house nearly five years ago. We miss their burbling chatter.
Today I bought a box from a roadside ‘shop’ close to home and was delighted at these lovelies when I opened it up 🤗
