Tulip #14

Tulip #14


1960’s Nordiska print on contemporary linen. 50x50cm fabric.

Linen threads and two printed cards included: one card with a photograph of the original artwork, an English translation of stitches used, and a brief history of its origins. The other card describes the 24 common stitches used by Nordiska in their kits. This embroidery kit involves a little bit of improvising, as we don’t have the exact instructions for it.

The threads that are wrapped with a label are all vintage, both Swedish and Scottish mid century, and the hank is contemporary linen dyed in Sweden.
To this particular set, I have added more threads than usual, so you can try various linen to embroider with: 

4 skeins of mid century linen from Kilbirnie, Scotland
1 skein of HV-thread, very fine linen from Sweden
1 25/4 stranded linen from Nordiska, and one hank of 5+ colours of contemporary linen in the same size as the Kilbirnie linen. 

Linen shrinks 4-5%, soak before laundry and always avoid tumble drying for linen fibres. The print is wash proof.

The last picture shows the positioning of the print on the 50x50cm fabric. For backing (if you like to make a cushion) it's nice to use for example Donegal tweed, or any vintage fabric.
