CB5 - 'Flowering in Red' Scissor Fob or Pin Cushion in Drawn Thread work  

Drawn Thread work is one of the earliest and most ancient forms of openwork embroidery. Inspired by these early beginnings this charming design features a pretty Daisy eyelet motif worked in Buttonhole stitch to complement the use of Coral Knots and Woven Wheels. A foundation of Four-sided stitch surrounding the Buttonhole stitch border is whipped to finish.

This project is for those who would like to start or expand their knowledge of Whitework while enjoying working a contemporary colour combination. Worked in 40 count Newcastle linen the finished Scissor Fob measure just over 2 inches square. 

Finishing techniques include:

  • adding silk lining 
  • Ladder stitch seam joins
  • twisting a cord
  • tassel making 

For those who prefer, there is a Kit option to complete the same design as a Pin Cushion in 32 count Belfast linen. A single side of embroidery will be complemented with a matching silk base using the same finishing techniques. The finished Pin CushionFloweringinRed_PinCushion_Detail measures approximately 3.25 inches square. 

Or perhaps make both!
