My Folk Flourishes kits help you take traditional folk embroidery and stitch it on garments and household objects you already have! A hybrid between cross stitch and visible mending, the technique is easy to learn, and works up quickly. Great for personalizing your clothes and giving as gifts!


The Folk Flourish SEASIDE kit features scrolls, knotwork, and geometric motifs from traditional folk embroidery sources. Worked in a fresh palette of greens, pinks, and warm blue, it includes 4 motifs and 6 borders.


Each kit includes a 12x12" piece of our Folk Flourishes 26ct waste fabric, DMC floss (8 yds each of 5 colors), a John James size 24 cross stitch needle, and complete instructions (kit does not include an item to Flourish)


How-to videos: the short version can be seen above or the longer video on how to Folk Flourish a shirt yoke can be found on the How To page.


Suggested items to flourish: shirts, pants, shorts, bandanas and scarves, children's clothing, baby items (bibs, etc), tote bags, napkins, kitchen towels
