Tulip Front

Tulip Back

Iris Front

Iris Back

FLOWERS, BUTTERFLIES AND CANADIAN FLAG

The Tulip and the Iris are a fun simple shadow work project that can be worked as a mini project in an embroiderers group.

Working the embroidery: The Shadow Work stitch is a simple backstitch worked on the front of the work alternating back and forth along two lines that are parallel to each other (bands), on the back of the work herringbone is created by the stitches crossing from one edge of the band to the other. The herringbone shows through the fabric at the front of the work as an opaque band. The ends of the threads are easily finished off in the stitches at the back of the work so that they do not show up obviously in the embroidery. Each design can be displayed in a card window mat  or in a clear perspex frame or key ring.

The instructions includes diagrams for working the herringbone stitch and finishing ends and an enlarged picture of the back of the embroidery so you can see how the herringbone stitch lays. I also explain how to mount the embroidery can be mounted so that the embroidery can be displayed from both sides.
