Orange slice needle painting kit

It’s here – Paraffle’s first needle painting kit!

Just like my other designs, we’ve got the most gorgeous, bright colour combinations – but this time, we’re switching up the style and getting fruity!

Needle painting can look a bit complex (even intimidating!) at times. This kit will show you how to break it down into small, achievable steps – teaching you the basic techniques needed, and how to start blending thread colours.

It’s suitable for total beginners, as well as people who want to expand their existing embroidery skills.

The kit includes a 3 inch embroidery hoop, a stencil, DMC threads on a Paraffle thread organiser, a needle, and a step by step instruction booklet with high quality photos of each stage.

There’s two background colours to choose from: a delightfully bright hot pink; or a classic contrasting navy blue.

Paraffle note:I’ll be honest, I meant to design this as a quirky Christmas bauble – but the finished piece was so juicy and summery that I’m making it available all year round! It can still be a fun decoration for any season; or for an extra twist, the finished piece is sturdy enough to make a patch for your clothes!

About the orange slice needle painting kit

  • 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, with step-by-step pictures of the project.
  • Each kit includes a quality 3 inch wooden hoop and plenty of DMC thread (so don’t worry if you make a mistake or want to practice first!).
  • Our needle painting kits come with a stencil, and carbon paper to transfer the pattern. 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.
  • We’re a carbon neutral business, and donate at least 10% of our profits to charity through dedicated charity designs
