Crewel embroidery: patterns and stitches

Sets for crewel embroidery by Little Owl SmartCrafts TM include unique crewel patterns designed by Tatiana Popova.

(Some of the patterns will be featured in her new book, Crewel Embroidery: 7 Enchanting Designs Inspired by Fairytales, published by Search Press in February 2020. Find out more about the book here.)


Our sets for crewel embroidery include:

- pattern transferred onto high-quality cotton fabric (optional: backing fabric may be also added - if mentioned in the Materials list on the corresponding design page),

- step-by-step stitch guide for all stitches and techniques employed,

- detailed and colour-coded embroidery instructions,

- tips on thread choice - the list of threads used for original stitching. (Tatiana uses mostly DMC cotton thread - both stranded cotton and pearl cotton, but if you prefer a traditional way and would like to stitch with wool, feel free to replace it - you will find a conversion chart to Appletone whool included in every crewel kit);

- beautiful, bright, clear and high-resolution close-up photographs;

- a photograph of the finished piece.
