Tulip Garden 7883
Unnamed artist for Nordiska, 1963

Originally a small cushion (circa 30x32 cm), Tulip 7883 is a fun pattern to embroider with a mix of seven simple stitches. 

In this kit you will receive a printed sheet of beautiful linen, ca 50 x 50 cm which you can fold and sew into a cushion cover of 45 x 45 cm. 

12 skeins of linen thread are included, together with three chenille needles on a vintage paper cut. Originally there were 19 colours in this design but you can easily finish it with 12 skeins, and then add more shades if you prefer to embroider the Tulips as in the 60’s. 

We have not found a sheet of the original colour and stitch chart, but you can follow the shades of light and dark and see the stitches on the original drawing.

We will also include a stitch card with 24 common stitches of 60's linen embroidery, and a little note about the origins of the Tulip design. 

The card shows the pattern drawing made prior to production of the kits.

The stitches used are:

stem stitch - chain stitch - satin stitch - lazy daisy stitch
y-stitch - split stitch - couching stitch
