I am a college student and wanted to pick up a new hobby. This was just the thing! This piece took me a day and a half (because I couldn't put it down!). It was loads of fun and I could take it anywhere. I put it in my backpack and used it as a break between studying. If I didn't understand a stitch I just watched a quick youtube video and was good to go! Loads of fun!
During quarantine I realized how much I miss doing projects that were assigned to me. Now i have to pick up my pants and assign one to myself. That's how I felt when I bought this. I saw it as an opportunity to have homework at the end of each day but something that is fun and creative. This set is definitely worth the money and is a lot of fun. 5 days later and I finished 1! But that was due to sheer excitement and not wanting to stop. I recommend this to those wanting to pick this back up. I dont think its really for beginners as the instructions were ok. I had to rely on my memory and fact check with videos. So, 4/5 for beginning levels.
I am excited to use this set! They come with needles which is great, though I will use my own. The hoops are larger than the last set I got which was unexpected - they are also plastic instead of wood. They are well made and will be great for what I wanted. I like that the pattern will wash off and is in light blue instead of a darker color. The instructions are clear enough if you know what you are doing already, but if not you may want to watch a youtube video or two about the stitches.
So much fun! This was my first time embroidering and this kit was perfect. The only thing I would recommend would be to look up a video of each stitch if you need further direction. But it comes with a picture of what the finished product should look like and instructions for each stitch.
I really enjoyed these patterns! I'd never embroidered before, and as other people have mentioned the instructions aren't totally clear. It's easy to google the stitches and basics (how to thread the needle, etc.). The quality of the thread isn't super, and I had several knots that I had to cut out. I also got dangerously close to running out of certain colors but that might have more to do with me not knowing what I was going. Overall they turned out great and it was a great hobby to learn while watching tv or distracting yourself in COVID.
Such cute designs and very easy to do as a beginner! Such a fun little hobby to pick up on during the shelter in place. I love how the kit provides everything you need, along with step by step instructions on some of the basic stitches. The only thing I wish was for the quality of the yarn to be a little better. When you try to tread it through the needle, the strands separate and it doesn't give a neat of a stitch as I would like. Otherwise, very fond of this kit!
As a novice embroiderer, a little more guidance would be beneficial in the instructions. Also, I ran a barely hot iron over the fabric to get rid of the creases before I started and the entire outline disappeared. :( There should def be a warning on the kit about that. I’m not sure that I’ll even be able to start, much less complete, the one where the outline disappeared. I can’t speak for the rest of the kits. This is a first impression.
This was a great thing to do during the beginning of the pandemic, when it was cold outside and nothing to do inside. It was my first time doing embroidery and I would definitely recommend this to beginners. The directions leave a little to be desired, but through trial and error you can catch on pretty quickly. I wished the needle was a smaller, but I didn't have a different one to use. The patterns & string colors are really pretty. The patterns are drawn on with a water-washable ink with a code number at the bottom. When I washed it off at the end, it bled into other parts of the fabric and wouldn't come off. Be careful! I made mine into pillows & sent them to friends. They're cute!
I ordered this embroidery as I aspired to gain a new hobby - this product was supper beneficial in doing so. The product provided everything you need to get started immediately. Learning definitely takes a little practice and getting used to. On that note, I think instructions for getting started would be supper beneficial!
Fun kit! I wanted to try embroidery as a relaxation craft and for down time while working from home. The instructions are simple but easy to follow. Heads up though, don’t try to iron the fabric before starting - the pattern will disappear!! It happened to my green cloth and now I’ll have to figure out a design on my own. I also wish the kit came with at least one extra strand of each color; the amount given cuts it pretty close.
