A delightful and comprehensive introduction to this form of embroidery from Kathleen.
Kathleen Laurel Sage
Kathleen takes you through all the steps needed to create this lovely design (which also comes as a kit so you can start straight away!).
In this comprehensive workshop Kathleen takes you through how to transfer your design onto your fabric; shows you how to load this into your embroidery hoop correctly; and then talks you through the order of sewing – a little like Applique you need to now which bits go on first.
You also get to learn about the threads Kathleen likes to use; there is a great tip on how to cope with the points on the design; how to finish off; the order of stiching and tips on how to use metallic threads and finally why Kathleen likes to use acrylic paint instead of leather!
Finally she has a suggestion that you might like to use this little piece of embroidery to adorn the top of a box.
She may be a rebel but the finished result if gorgeous and you get loads of tips to get great results.
(this is just the first of a series of workshops with Kathleen on this subject so keep watching)
