The kit uses a split back stitch to fill the blocks of colour in, you're stitching over a print of the illustration so you know where to put each colour. It’s a really simple stitch, but because there is quite a lot of work involved in filling the different areas of colour, it is recommanded for a confident beginner, rather than someone who is just starting out in embroidery.
This kit was designed using an illustration by Ekaterina Trukhan. Ekaterina is a Russian illustrator who graduated from Camberwell College of Arts with a BA degree in Illustration. She creates illustrations for children's books, magazines and products and is also the author of several children's books published in the UK, USA, Russia and Slovakia.
