Seconds are kits in which the stamped design on the fabric is faint in a small section of the design because I didn't apply enough pressure when stamping the fabric. If you don't mind using the provided stitch diagram to trace that area, then you can snag one of these kits at a sale price! The last photo shows an example of a seconds kit.
This delightful floral design originates in a Pennsylvania redware pottery plate in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Its cheery flowers and bright colors make a great free hand embroidery design for beginner and experienced stitchers alike.
My high quality kits include the design stamped with waterproof archival ink on 100% Kona cotton (so you can wash the design after if you like), DMC 100% cotton embroidery floss, John James size 7 embroidery needle, how to embroider instruction booklet, and a reusable stitch diagram (simply tape it to a window or light box and trace onto the fabric of your choice), and 6' bamboo embroidery hoop.
Stitches: Backstitch, satin stitch, Pekinese stitch
Finished size: 6 inches in diameter
These kits are 100% reusable or recyclable and packaged in environmentally friendly packaging (no plastic!).
