Take a look at the sets here and if you love Shisha Mirrors as much as I do, then click on the pictures and head over to our website and place your order.
Want to learn how to stitch Indian shisha – here is the set to get you started – you get a selection of Anchor embroidery thread, a packet of large eyed needles, some embroidery scissors and 3 bags of different Indian mirrors – 2 bags of round mirrors (0.5 cm and 1 cm) and a bag of square shisha (1 cm).
