‘Pebbles in a Box’ – A Home Delivered Machine Embroidery Project


‘Pebbles in a Box’ is a machine embroidery project that will arrive at your door complete with all the materials you would need to complete a fabulous sample that could be made in to bag, cushion or art work for your wall.


Upon booking your box you will be provided with all the materials and instructions to stitch your own 30cm by 30 cm sample.

The ‘pebble’ technique was originally developed from working samples produced for a coastal exhibition. I went on to develop the idea and started to use the technique in my bags and cushions.  Each completed piece will be unique to you.  Choose from the colour combinations listed above and I will select a range of fabrics to inc silks, velvets and lame. Included in your ‘Pebble Box’ will be your base fabric, lace, interlining – all you need to be able to provide is.a machine with the ability to drop the feed dogs and a free motion foot.

The project offers both beginners in machine embroidery and more advanced a chance to play with textures and colour combinations with super results.  There is a large amount of free motion stitching which means its great for those wishing to build up their confidence in going ‘Free – motion’!

In your box will be a large quantity of mixed fabrics but if you are able to raid your own stash of little bits of space-dyed or commercial fabrics to inc silk velvet, dupion, velvet, metallic leather/faux leather – sequin fabrics please do so.  The project is great for breathing new life into old clothes and other lovely textiles we all hoard at home waiting for the perfect project.

Alongside the set of instructions I am happy to answer any questions on the telephone whilst you work through the project, just drop me an email.

Once you have selected your colour way  allow 14 days delivery time – this will give me a bit of time to select your fabrics in- between workshops!
