The Official "Kit"

As you may (or may not) know, I started offering some of my illustrations for embroidery patterns. Some are fun freebies and others are not. The ones that are not (or in the current case, the ONE as there is only one at the moment but will soon be more), I think they are very affordable.

Well, I've finally just finished off my first official "kit" and wanted to show it off a bit. I hope to do this for all of my downloads at some point, or at least for the great majority of them.

Currently the kit comes with a lovely cover page, an instructions page and then, of course, the image. I have a few ideas floating around in my mind about what I'd like to add, but I have to figure some more bits and bobs out first. If you print it out and have a pair of scissors handy (and really, who doesn't?), then I think it would make a lovely gift.

I'd love to know what you think and for those of you who embroider, if you could tell me what I could add to them to give them extra pizzazz, I'm all ears!

The Snowman and the Mouse Embroidery Kit is available here.

Hmm, the few times that I embroidered, I had the colors of yarn to go with the pattern. Maybe that's something to consider: ready made kits to start right away?
This is a very fun design! :)

It is very cute indeed!
And as for ideas, maybe also something less seasonal so that could be used at all seasons might be an option?

So strange, I left a comment earlier but it's not here... :(
Anyway, when I think about embroidery kits, I always like it when the thread and needles are included so I can start right away so maybe that's an idea?
I love the design of this one, Gretchen, it's so cute! :)
