High Heel Needle Painting Kit

$50.00 USD

The High Heel Needle Painting Kit is an ambitious project for tackling the long and short stitch technique, also called 'needle painting' or 'thread painting'. In needle painting, multiple shades of thread are blended across the fabric to create beautiful, almost realistic images. The finished product may look intimidating, but the stitch itself is very simple; the illusion comes from the color gradients, stitch directions, and diligent single-strand work.

While this pattern is marked as ‘moderately difficult’, everyone’s skill set is different. Some knowledge of embroidery or painting may be helpful, but most important is an upbeat attitude. 

This listing is for a complete DIY embroidery kit; you will recieve all of the materials needed to stitch your own High Heel from start to finish. If you prefer digital embroidery patterns, you can find the PDF pattern listing for the High Heel here
