I have purchased Felt Applique kits before. I am never disappointed. The quality and ease of directions is always first rate. My granddaughetr will be soo pleased.
I love how this turned out! It took a while so it isn't for the faint of heart as you need to separate strands and the grid is small! I made stockings for my own girls and now purchased two different Dimensions Needlepoint kits for my granddaughters. Needless to say it has been decades since I attempted this. Those that I made over 30 years ago were wool yarn, and these are embroidery floss which is more difficult to work with but the results are stunning. The sweater has beautiful colors which took time to finish--you may have four stitches of one color followed by 6 of a slightly different shade. It is forgiving so you don't need to be that accurate unless it is a completely different color (like the turquoise triangles) That said it was frustrating to separate the strands of thread. It took hours but I became proficient at it and separated them all up front. Based on other reviews you will get better coverage and should separate. I didn't add all the features like the pom pom and I didn't outline all areas and I think it gave it a better look. I lined the stocking and purchased other backing to give it a richer look. I also would have preferred the name to be stitched on the stocking rather than just placed on top of the finished work. For that reason along it gets four stars instead of five.
