Fine Beadwork Embroidery Kits

Slate Blue

Rosie Beadwork Kit or Chart


A  really charming and elegant design, inspired by Berlin woolwork, that is deceptively simple to stitch. The beads, whilst being carefully selected to reflect the muted colours of old needlework, capture light giving a eye-catching shimmer to the finished work.

The whole design is worked in the highest quality Japanese seed beads on a fine duck egg blue linen. Clear, detailed instructions, including plenty of diagrams, are included to guide you through the technique of using waste canvas as a temporary grid when sewing the beads using white cotton thread and half cross-stitch.

Everything is included in the kit to complete Rosie; full colour chart, individually labelled seed beads, beading needles, white sewing thread, duck egg blue linen, waste canvas and instruction booklet.

When worked in seed beads on 12 count waste canvas Rosie measures approximately 40cm by 30cm with a generous margin for framing.

If you would prefer to stitch Rosie using your own selection of embroidery threads and an evenweave fabric, such as Aida, then you are very welcome to purchase just the printed colour chart. The finished size will vary depending on the type of evenweave used.

The picture frame is not included - please contact me if you would like further advice.
