BLACKWORK STAR Kit of the Month

This fun counted technique is for all levels of embroiderers and suitable for beginners.

The blackwork star is worked from a chart and an easy to read instruction booklet which has step by step instructions and diagrams on how to work the blackwork star. The star is embellished with gold spangles and beads and Japan thread and the background is worked in random stitched gold stars.

The design can be worked on any count fabric over two threads of the fabric in black DMC embroidery cotton or feel free to go wild and work the design in coloured floss, variegated thread or metallic thread. Typically 32 or 28 count fabric is used. The original were worked on 32 count.
