Long and Short Stitch: Bright Beauty
Time & Location
About This Workshop
Create a colourful lapel brooch to brighten your winter wear or make a patch to embellish your favourite garment. The choice is yours!
Using a bright selection of Fine D'Aubusson Crewel wools this project introduces the novice stitcher to Long and Short Stitch or perhaps practice for those more experienced.
Beads add a bit of sparkle to the Woven Wheel centre which is outlined in Coral Knots. Luscious green leaves in Fly Stitch complement the soft and textured Tudor Rose.
