Embroidered Pashminas April 08, 2015 15:03
I have just finished the samples for my embroidered pashmina class which will be held at the Royal School of Needlework, Hampton Court Palace in August. The students will be able to choose from a selection of beautiful coloured pashminas and will be spending the two day class creating either the silver filigree motif or the floral lace border. I cant wait!
The silver filigree design uses a combination of DMC stranded cottons and metallic stranded threads. Stem stitch, back stitch, woven backstitch, split stitch, satin stitch, silk shading and couching are embellished with metal beads and a beautiful filigree medallion.
The floral lace border uses DMC stranded cottons and stranded metallic thread. Silk shading, couching, stem stitch, back stitch, woven back stitch, split stitch and satin stitch are combined with an embellishment of pearl beads, sequins and appliqued lace.
