Simple Point d'Esprit Etui

Kit cost $15

This etui cover stitched in simple Point d’Esprit on fine linen allows you to learn the basics of this stitch on a project that won’t overwhelm you. Learn to withdraw the threads, secure the edges, prepare the grid, and add the simple Point d’Esprit design to a cover for a breath mint box. Because each step must be completed before you can move to the next, plenty of class time is allowed so that you will be able to enjoy adding the final step to your box cover. Twisted cord and finishing techniques will also be discussed. The box may also be finished as a Presentation Box, Jewelry Box, or Button Box.
