Bordeaux embroidery pattern fits in a hoop of 20cm (8″) in diameter. On one of our trips to Bordeaux, this street scene caught Elin’s eye. Sometimes it’s in the most regular scenes that the interesting stories are being told. Who lives behind the blue doors? That’s up to you to imagine with each stitch on this unique design. It is perfect training of contour work as well as touches of threadpainting techniques for the doors. The doorknob will also provide a new challenge on how you can use french knots for something other than flowers.
Upon purchase you will also have the technique, stitch and colour guide included. No physical material will be shipped with this purchase. The files will be sent as downloadable pdfs, thus you need to be able to open, read and print pdf files.

We have gone together with our favourite material supplier to create the best offers for you. For this design the Kona Cotton can be the perfect choice. You are also able to search for the colour-codes by their numbers to know that you get exactly the one you are looking for.
