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 shows how to transfer your design onto your fabric and how to load this into your embroidery hoop correctly. She talks you through the order of sewing – a little like applique, you need to know 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 and how to finish off, and tips on how to use metallic threads and finally why Kathleen likes to use acrylic paint instead of leather!
She has a suggestion that you might like to use this little piece of embroidery to adorn the top of a box or book cover. Katheleen may be a rebel, but the finished result is gorgeous and you get loads of tips to get great results.
