The ‘Living Picture’ series of embroidery kits by PANNA has earned its name.

The designs of these kits are based on the famous artists’ paintings and the resulting embroideries look like real, 3D, flowers due to the techniques used.  ‘Magic made easy’ is the motto of the series that gained recognition at the arts and crafts supplies market.

The Living Picture kits are a good choice for both the experienced crafters and novices. The full picture is printed on the fabric and the embroiderer is stitching with stranded cottons and various ribbons over the printed background.

Thanks to this technique, it’s possible to complete the picture in a short time even if you have no previous experience in ribbon or freestyle embroidery. Stitches bring the picture to life, adding vivid colours, air and dimension due to the precise selection of the colours and the alternation of the materials and stitches used.

Every kit contains everything you need to complete the picture: a piece of fabric with a printed picture, silk, satin or organza ribbons, stranded cottons, needles and illustrated step-by-step instructions. Take a small kit, like JK-2141 'Posy of Roses', to try for yourself how easy and enjoyable may be the process of bringing the flowers to life.
