I used to hate textiles when I was at school. For me, It was such a faff having to thread the sewing machine. Recently, however I have wanted to try and acquire some basic sewing skills so I purchased this mini kit from Corinne Lapierre’s website. The dispatch and delivery was extremely quick. Though once I opened the kit I saw how mini this mini-kit really was.
My initial worries with this piece were how I was going to fit all the details on as the hoop was only 11cm . I do think it ended up looking a bit squashed when compared to the example shown on the front of the box , however I think it was a decent attempt and I really do love the floral design.
I also learnt how to three new stiches: french knots, back stitch and a straight stitch.
