Les Parapluies de Cherbourg ( The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) is a French inspired hand embroidery kit. I loved the movie "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" and was fascinated with the storefront's colors. It was the first movie I saw in which the dialogue was sung as recitative. There is a welcoming flower sign in the window along with many colorful umbrellas.
This is one of many French shops that can be grouped into a collection on a wall.
- Finished size is 8.9" x 12.6". Will fit into an 11" x 14" frame depending upon the mat. Great frames at Ikea and Michaels.
The kit includes:
- printed design on linen/cotton fabric
- a Bohin #10 needle
- DMC floss
- detailed stitching and floss instructions for all parts of the design
- general stitching guide
- wooden hoop
