The Puffing Billy Steam Locomotive Blackwork Embroidery Kit or Pattern
The Puffing Billy Steam Locomotive Blackwork Kit is based on the oldest surviving steam locomotive.
It was constructed between 1813-1814 for the Wylam Collery. It was one of three similar engines built by William Hedley.
This is part of a collection of Steam Locomotive designs I am designing with my Steam Engine loving Dad. The others in the set include Catch-Me-Who-Can, The Wylam Dilly, Locomotion No.1 and Clun Castle Steam Locomotive.
My Dad has proof stitched each of the engine patterns for me.
This design is ideal for anyone, from a beginner to an expert in any counted embroidery technique.
Apart from a sewing frame/hoop and scissors, this kit is ready to use as soon as you receive it in the post.
- 112 x 84 stitches on 28 count evenweave or 14 count aida.
