April's project takes you outside to enjoy the spring sunshine to gather some of the natural materials around you!
Head out for a walk in the great outdoors, visit your local park, woodland or have a potter around your garden and collect a variety of leaves. There are thousands of varieties and I'm sure that wherever you live you'll be able to find a selection of different shapes, sizes and textures without going far.
You'll then explore printing with your leaves to create a stunning, decorative leaf printed and embroidered tea towel.
If you've bought this project, you'll find your tutorial video below (the password is on the front of the printed instructions in your box!)
You'll start by embroidering a beautiful poem onto your tea towel, you can use our suggestion or perhaps you have your own favourite of your own you'd like to add. We've used: "Here is a little forest Whose leaf is ever green. Here is a brighter garden, Where not a frost has been." - Emily Dickinson.
Once you've collected your leaves and they're dry, it's time to have some fun and get creative! Using your little ink pad, which is a beautiful shade of opulent Celadon green, you'll print some beautiful patterns from your leaves onto your cotton tea towel.
Once your printed leaves have dried you can add the details! We're including a handpicked selection of six shades of green embroidery threads that will compliment your leaf prints. Get your stitch on and add decorative highlights and textures to your printed patterns.
Bring the great outdoors to your kitchen with spring with this craft project, create and print and embroidered tea towel and add a pop of colour your home this Spring.
We think it may be way too pretty to use to dry your dishes!
Everything you need to make your printed tea towel is inside your box, which includes:
- Cotton Tea Towel
- Celadon Green Ink Pad
- 6 x Shades of Green Embroidery Floss
- Sewing Needle
You'll also have your step-by-step photo instructions, online video tutorial to make it easy to follow along as you create your project and a little something for your pinboard.
