Whale Cushion Kit & Pattern

Paisley Whale Cushion Embroidery Kit - a DIY kit for modern hand embroidery.

This kit has everything that you need to embroider your own fancy cushion cover - each one is designed to include ten types of embroidery stitch, and the guide included gives comprehensive instructions for each one. The cushion cover included is premade, Fairtrade and Organic, with a zip opening - so no difficult sewing required, just the lovely embroidery!

These kits are great for beginners and pros alike - that means they're perfect for people who want to learn the techniques of embroidery, or as a gift for a crafty friend. Plus, you can display and use your handiwork once you're done!

 

Note that cushion filler/inner is not provided with this kit.

    1. Our cushions are organic and ethically sourced: the fabric is made by a family business in South India, then given to a local women’s co-op to stitch into cushions.

    2. Our kits are as eco-friendly as possible, with sustainable packaging and recycled postal mailers.

    3. All Paraffle kits are handmade in Scotland, in our Edinburgh studio - buying from us means supporting a small, female founded business.

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. 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!).

    7. 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!

    8. 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!).

    9. We’re a carbon neutral business, and donate at least 10% of our profits to charity through dedicated charity designs.

lovely project!

This is the second embroidery cushion project I've bought but I haven't finished this whale yet. I've previously completed the peacock cushion and loved doing it!

The instructions are very clear and it's really fun to make. It looks gorgeous when done and I've received many compliments.

Embroidery fun

Gosh such a long time since I have embroidered with fond memories of chain stitch and french knots.

Very clear and easy to follow instructions for the Whale cushion. Really chuffed with the finished cushion which I have made as a gift 🎁.

Beginner's kit, pretty design

I'm enjoying the kit so far, it can be for a beginner or a bit more experienced person. Love the design taking shape. Quick delivery and strong thread.

Have just finished this and am really pleased with how it looks! The design is great and works well on the cushion. Instructions are easy to follow and the kit came with a little booklet explaining all the stitches in simple terms.
