embroidery kit

I’m very happy to distribute everything you need to make beautiful Mountmellick embroidery with the real traditional material. Everything is on the site Et Brode le Papillon...

This type of embroidery is originating from the village of Mountmellick in Ireland. It is part of the big family of white embroidery. The striking effect is produced by the use of a thick matt thread on a cotton satin, a fabric with a bit of sheen. For more information have a look at this site.

You will found three different size of the very special Mountmellick thread made in the UK for Vetty Creations. Each size comes in small or large skein. The thread is 100% cotton, it is matt.

For the cotton satin, you can go for the very traditional choice with a white fabric. You’ll find other colours if you prefer something more trendy.

Mountmellick work has always a border made with a knitted fringe. To knit it, you will need a thread very similar to the embroidery thread. I have what Vetty Creations has been made in Australia.

And finally, you will found inspiration with her book : Mountmellick Embroidery, inspired by nature.

I created a kit for you to try Mountmellick embroidery to embellish a dining table with a modern design with a composition of daisy. With this kit, you will learn eight different stitches.


Finally, comes my first kit on-line. Here it is. The name of my company is « Et brode le papillon… » which means « And the butterfly embroiders… ».

The kit is for making a Christmas wreath with silk ribbon embroidery.

The kit contains the full instructions, the full size pattern, the linen fabric, the threads, the ribbons, the glass beads and five needles.

Each stitch is explained with colour drawing and each motif with colour photo.


So far, only the English version is available . Soon the French version will be available.

This is the last project I made. I wanted to make something for my students to learn some traditional stitches and to use different threads. I used perlé, metallic, rayonne, chenille threads, beads, sequins, silk and organza ribbons.
For the inside of the pocket, I asked them to create it themselves. They made something fantastic. Soon, I’ll load their work. For mine, I just used a ready to use felt which I cut with a wave blade. I add a little ribbon with roses. I used a simple machine stitch to sew the pockets.

Ceci est le dernier projet que j’ai réalisé. Je voulais faire quelque chose pour que mes élèves apprennent quelques points traditionnels et utilisent différents fils. J’ai utilisé des fils perlés, métallisés, rayonne et chenille, des perles, des paillettes, et differents type de rubans et galons.
Pour l’intérieur de la pochette, j’ai demandé à chacune de le créer elle-même. Elles ont toutes réalisé des merveilles que je posterai bientôt.
