Whitework Christening Cushion April 02, 2015 22:09

 

 

 

 

Jo Christoforides, a designer and maker of bespoke bridalwear, commissioned me to create the monogram 'EE' and the date on a background of satin silk. This fabric was the same as that used on the clients wedding dress. After I had completed the embroidery, Jo turned it into a christening cushion. The monogram was created using fine whitework techniques with the padded lettering created using a technique called trailing.
