Toronto-based printmaking graduate Michelle Galletta first started embroidering when she decided to make her niece a set of three hand-made owl dolls to play with. Not being able to find an embroidery kit she was happy with, she decided to made her own. “As I was making Madeleine’s owls, I became fascinated with embroidery: the vibrant colors, the countless variety of stitches, the calming effect it had on me,” says Galletta. After several years of developing her embroidery skills and design work, Galletta launched Kiriki Press—a shop offering animal-inspired hand-embroidery doll patterns—“in the hopes of giving others the chance to make something precious with their own hands.”

A perfect gift for the crafter in your life, the Kiriki Press embroidered doll kits come with a screen-printed pattern on cotton, backing fabric, a range of embroidery floss, eco-friendly stuffing, and step-by-step instructions. Each kit is organized into three levels, depending on difficulty. In level 1—suitable for beginners—characters include an adorable monkey, a sloth, an elephant, and a panda. Level 2 offers animals needing intermediate stitches, such as a llama with an amazing tuft of hair, and a jumper-wearing “fiesta cat.” Level 3 kits offer something for expert embroiderers, due to the variety of intricate stitches. Among the available characters are a super-cute hedgehog, a cheeky chipmunk, and an icy blue wolf.

You can purchase all of these hand embroidery kits and more on the Kiriki Press Etsy shop.

Whether you’re a pro stitcher or a beginner, these adorable DIY embroidered doll kits are suitable for all skill levels.
