Apple Blossoms

The Apple Blossoms are a 2-sided hand embroidery technique. The design is worked in surface embroidery stitches on a taffeta fabric using DMC No. 8 Perle cotton thread. In the kit there are two apple blossom designs and two pieces of taffeta fabric so that you can work both designs.

I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 21 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on how to work each stitch which are reversible so that the back looks the same as the front.

Once you receive the kit you will transfer the design onto the taffeta fabric by tracing the design on with a pencil. You do not require a light box to see the design through the fabric.

I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 21 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on how to work each stitch which are reversible so that the back looks the same as the front.

Stitches include: Satin stitch, padded satin stitch, stem stitch, French knots and long and short stitch.

I display my 2-Sided Apple Blossoms in a 2-sided perspex table stand which I purchased from a craft store.

The 2-sided embroidery kits are great designs to improve your stitching skills and to impress your friends.

The Shadow Work Squirrel Fish is an intermediate surface embroidery technique.

The shadow work embroidery is made up of bands of herringbone stitch at the back of the fabric that show through at the front as a shadow of colour. The technique was traditionally used for table coverings as the stitching was on the back of the work so that it was protected from being snagged/damaged.

I have designed my shadow work embroideries as pieces of art. The squirrel fish looks lovely mounted between two window mat boards and hung from the corners like a mobile so that both sides of the embroidery can be seen and makes a great bathroom decoration.

The Mountmellick Corner Design is an Irish white work hand embroidery technique in which heavy white cotton threads are used to work surface embroidery stitches creating a floral design on a heavy cotton satin jean fabric, which has a smooth and slightly shiny surface. Traditionally the technique was used to decorate household coverings such as cushion covers and table cloths as the the fabric and threads are durable and can be boiled to be cleaned.

This is a great technique for any level of stitcher as the stitches are easy to work, there are 15 different surface embroidery stitches on the embroidery.
