Kathleen enjoys adding the padded leather to her work as this adds another dimension which catches the light.   She talks you through the type of leather that is best for this design; how to create the padded effect with felt and the sewing sequence necessary for best results.

Once applied then the edges can be tidied up with couching (and if you don’t know how to do this – Kathleen showed us how in the Couching Goldwork workshop)

She then adds purl wires as stamens in the flower – but take care when using this as once uncurled it won’t go back!

Sequin waste creates the strawberries and finally you get to add beads!

If you are in need of the hoop or the beading needles – click through to find them in the shop.

If you enjoy slow stitching, then this is definitely the technique for you!
