CLASS - DF49 Goldwork Sweet Bag 

The embroidery for the gold sweet bag is adapted from an early 17th century coif and forehead cloth in the Micheál and Elizabeth Feller Collection. The motifs of the scrolling design are a carnation or gillyflower, borage, cornflower, daffodil and a rose, plus leaves and buds. The three creatures are a bird, a caterpillar, and a moth. The sweet bag was described as a “scintillating technical tour de force” by the judges of the Needleprint “A Mirror To My Art’ competition in 2012.

This is a surface stitchery project, embroidered in a range of metal threads to replicate the look of the original embroidery on a fine linen ground. The stitches worked on the front are Elizabethan ladder braid (students will have the option of plaited braid stitch), detached needle lace, ladder stitch variations, threaded reverse chain, vandyke and woven spider’s webs.  The back of the sweet bag features interlaced diamond and square herringbone stitch, woven spider’s webs and counted stitches.
The bag measures 13.7cm H x 11.8cm W
