Description

Scarlet Glory

The embroidery design measures 25cm (10″) square.

Crewelwork ** level 2 *** – This project is perfect if you are confident with basic embroidery stitches and would like to stitch something a little more challenging.

Crewel embroidery was often used to decorate large bed hangings with extravagant floral patterns and I wanted Scarlet Glory to look as if it is perhaps a fragment of a much larger piece. The colour palette of burnt orange, terra cotta and pinks gives it a warm, contemporary appearance.
The embroidery is stitched onto Italian linen, using 25 different embroidery stitches to create different textures and patterns within the design. The detailed instructions and diagrams will help guide you step by step through the project.

 

IN THIS KIT YOU WILL FIND:
* INSTRUCTION BOOKLET with detailed, step by step instructions and diagrams
* Italian linen with the embroidery design printed, ready to stitch.
* 3 needles
* 19 shades of Appletons crewel wool
(Please note this kit does NOT include materials to make the cushion)

YOU WILL ALSO NEED
* 50cm (20”) wide slate frame, 90cm x 1.5cm (36” x 5/8”) wide cotton tape, strong thread for lacing
OR
A 40cm (16”) embroidery hoop with deep sides and the inner ring bound.
