These embroidery kits are unique in two ways: first, they feature a Catholic image (which inspires contemplation while you spend the hours doing this slow and fruitful work), and second, the object of the embroidery is not a raw piece of cloth but rather a nice (hand sewn) pouch which can be used to store devotional items, or make a nice gift once the embroidery is complete. The kits include detailed instructions on each stitch needed to complete the embroidery, as well as some basic embroidery instructions, additional more advanced tips, and instructions for attaching a protective backing to your work.
Important: The embroidery pattern will either be drawn with a heat erasable pen, or printed onto a special dissolvable sticker paper. Please avoid exposing it to any heat or moisture until you have completed the embroidery so that you do not risk the design disappearing.
Each kit contains:
- Handmade pouch (measuring approximately 6×6 inches) with the embroidery pattern drawn on it
- Enough embroidery floss needed for the project
- 3 inch wooden embroidery hoop
- Two embroidery needles
- Needle threader
- Round iron-on backing
- Detailed stitch instruction page
- Embroidery tips + backing your work instruction page
If you have any questions about the kits or need help completing the embroidery, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to you starting (or continuing) your embroidery journey with one of my kits and would be glad to help in any way I can. May the Lord bless and reward your work.

P.S. If you are brand new to embroidery, it might help you to watch my video tutorial where I show and explain the basics such as separating floss strands, threading and knotting the needle, preparing the hoop, etc.

This was my first attempt making a video tutorial for an embroidery kit, and I realized that I will not be able to do this for every kit. Instead, for the next kit I will try to stitch it “live” on Instagram (in small sessions over a few weeks) so that those who have purchased one can follow along, and also ask questions along the way. I hope this will work better for everyone and I am always open to feedback!
