Hummingbird Tote Bag Kit

Paisley Hummingbird Tote Bag Embroidery Kit - a DIY kit for modern hand embroidery.


This kit has everything that you need to embroider your own fancy tote bag - each one is designed to include ten types of embroidery stitch, and the guide included gives comprehensive instructions for each one. 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 show off your handiwork while out and about!

    1. Our kits are as eco-friendly as possible: the tote bags are pre-made and Earth Positive® (organic and GOTS certified), with sustainable packaging, and recycled postal mailers.
    2. All Paraffle kits are handmade in Scotland, in our Edinburgh studio - buying from us means supporting a small, female founded business.

    3. 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.

    4. 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.

    5. 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!).

    6. 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!

    7. 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!).

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

Absolutely gorgeous kit!

I love the fact this kit has enabled me to have a go at trying embroidery but on something other than the usual hoops! The design is gorgeous, with beautiful colours, super easy to follow instructions & super quick delivery.

Couldn't be happier with my kit - thank you! :) x
