Skill Level:

Suitable for All


Craft mat or other plastic table protector (I use oven liners from The Range £3)

Heat tool/ hairdryer for drying your work


An old credit card or store card for applying paint

A long flat palette for paint (a Tupperware lid would be good)

A palette to put glue in

A shallow water pot to stop your brush from drying out

Baby wipes/ paper towel for mopping up and cleaning hands

Gloves/ apron optional, we shall be using glue and paint

Scissors, small nail scissors and large scissors suitable for cutting napkins

Basic sewing kit and threads.

You can use any embroidery threads from your stash. I like working with perle size 8, if you prefer even thicker then size 5. You can also use any stranded embroidery threads if you prefer to work with thinner threads, these are also good for applying beads and sequins. You can also use a mix of the two types.

For the thicker threads you will need a Chenille needle, I use size 22 or 24 and you will have one of these in your kit

Provided in the Project Box:

Full instructions both written and visual

Stitch Sheet

Vintage map (see note below)

Green fabric paint

Napkins (see note below)

Decoupage glue

Glue brush

Chenille needle size 22 or 24

A few starter embroidery threads

Iron on interfacing

Baking parchment

Small bag of beads and sequins for embellishing

A tea bag to make yourself a cup of tea and sweetie treat for break time


You can provide your own map, but please keep to the size guide of the piece in your kit to ensure that the iron-on-interfacing fits. Choose one that has at least half blue sea colouring so we can use this as sky.


You are supplied with enough napkins to complete the project, but you might want to include some of your own. I have divided the napkins into large focus flowers, medium filler flowers, foreground small flowers, leaves, focus animals, birds and butterflies to fill.
