Good morning and happy Monday from a snow-covered Kansas!
I have to do a little Needle ‘n Thread house cleaning today. Funny how a website works a lot like a house – you can’t just let things go too long, or they get away from you!
The purpose of this article, then, is to provide an index for all the step-by-step embroidered kaleidoscope projects I’ve covered here on Needle ‘n Thread, including Party in Provence, Tulip Festival, Birthday Bash, and Coloris Kaleidoscope.
We’ve worked through four embroidered kaleidoscopes altogether. They’re not tiny projects, but they’re not huge projects, and some are quicker than others. They’re colorful and a lot of fun!
Feel free to bookmark this page for your future reference if you plan to work through any of the kaleidoscopes, or you can always find the index listed under “Tips & Techniques” (with a lot of other step-by-step embroidery projects!) in the main menu on Needle ‘n Thread.
I’ll be adding each of the Party in Provence tutorials to the list as the project progresses.
You’ll find the other three projects listed below as well, and the articles that cover them are listed in chronological order. So, the first article in the list is the earliest article (usually the introduction and materials) and the last article is the finish.
Party in Provence
Let’s Get this Party Started! – introduction, materials and set-up
Getting Started – introduction, materials, set-up
Embroidering Outward – the first rounds
Birthday Bash is a more loosely-covered project. The articles are not as specific, as far as instruction goes, but you’ll find ideas and stitching tips in the articles that cover the development of this project.
Coloris Kaleidoscope – the whole project
Favorite Kaleidoscopes Pattern Book
If you’re looking for an array of patterns to play with so you that you can stitch up some fun kaleidoscopes, you’ll find the patterns for the projects above – and over thirty kaleidoscope designs – in my e-book, Favorite Kaleidoscopes.
