This paisley Aurora banner kit is the perfect way for beginners to embroider their own tapestry style wall hanging.
The DIY kit includes everything you need to learn the basics of hand embroidery - while making a piece of art that you can proudly display in your home. The Northern Lights inspired design uses ten embroidery stitches, and the helpful guide included has clear instructions and photos to teach you all the new techniques - making it easy to get started!
Our kits are as eco-friendly as possible, with organic & ethically sourced fabric, FSC wooden hoops made in the UK, FSC and or recycled paper/card, and recycled postal mailers.
All Paraffle kits are handmade in Scotland, in our Edinburgh studio - buying from us means supporting a small, female founded business.
All of our kits - from super simple to intermediate - include a detailed booklet, with lots of photos to teach you each stitch. If videos are more your style, there’s video tutorials covering every stitch you’ll need in our ‘Stitches’ blog.
The kit includes a high quality reference photo of the finished design, and an easy to follow key showing you which stitches and colours to use.
Each kit includes a quality 8 inch wooden hoop and plenty of DMC thread (so don’t worry if you make a mistake or want to practice first!).
Our kits come with a pre-printed pattern to stick onto your fabric. It’s water-soluble, so you simply stitch over it, then wash it away (don’t worry, the threads are coloursafe!). Our patterns aren’t printed directly onto the fabric - we’ve done our research, and haven’t found any fabric printers that can tell us exactly where their fabric comes from and how it’s made. That’s important to us - so we found another way!
Embroidery is a helpful tool for encouraging mindfulness and giving you some extra head space. Our kits aim to gently teach you lifelong skills and get your creative juices flowing (even if you’re not a ‘crafty’ person!).
We’re a carbon neutral business, and donate at least 10% of our profits to charity through dedicated charity designs.

The kit arrived quickly and had everything I needed to complete the embroidery. There was more than enough thread so you could adapt the design if you wanted. The step by step guide on the stitches is great and I canâ€™t wait to buy my next kit.
