Ghost Beetle Textile Art Box


This is the third textile art kit from artist and embroidery designer Kate Tume, and contains everything you need to create this Ghost Beetle design, Mother Eagle style.

This limited edition design invites you to experiment with embellishment (in textile arts, this is a broad category encompassing the decoration of cloth by sewing on beads, sequins, and more), and introduces the idea of narrative in textile design. With a little patience and care, I believe everyone can create this design, no matter their embroidery experience.

What you'll get:
• 6" Embroidery hoop
• 9" square piece of cotton fabric
• Eco felt
• 2 needles
• Gutermann white cotton thread
• All the professional-quality beads and sequins you'll need
• 22-page fully-illustrated instruction booklet, full of my Pro-Tips for getting that extra polish
• Full colour Ghost Beetle trading card with info on why bugs are important, and the great work that do!

But wait there's more!

You'll also get my illustrated guide to mounting your work like a pro - FREE! And FREE worldwide shipping!

The only thing you don't get are embroidery scissors, and I also *highly* recommend a seat frame or barrel clamp to hold your provided frame, or to use instead. If you don't have one, or can't source one, working at a table where you can set your hoop down will work okay.

Every kit includes a £2 donation to, the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates.

My Art Boxes are also 100% plastic packaging free, and entirely vegan friendly.
