Mrs Sew & So Elsa Needlework Design

A strong, stylised floral embroidery design by Mrs Sew & So that could be made for cushions, bags or other needlework projects. The floral motif is inspired by the work of the designer’s mother in the early 1940s. Embroidered in stranded cotton or soft cotton, the kit includes colours of soft blue, grey colours, but the design is also very effective in other colours.

The design is traced onto fabric, stitches are shown and instructions for them are included. Our piece is 20 x 25cm, but the pattern can be enlarged to suit your project.

The compete kit includes:

  • The pattern,
  • Fabric, a pure linen in soft duck egg blue sufficient for a project 35cm x 50cm, including the backing,
  • 8 skeins of DMC Stranded or Soft Cotton threads
  • Needles to suit the project.
This is bold embroidery work, very forgiving and suited to someone with basic needlework skills.
