Crewel Work    * LEVEL 2 *

Scarlet Glory is suitable for embroiders with some experience. This is an ideal project if you are familiar with the basics of crewel work and are looking to further develop your skills.

Crewel embroidery was historically used to decorate large bed hangings with extravagant floral patterns. I wanted Scarlet Glory to look as if it was perhaps a fragment of a much larger piece. The colour palette of burnt orange, terracotta and pinks gives it a warm, contemporary appearance.

The embroidery is stitched onto Italian linen, using 25 different embroidery stitches to create textures and patterns within the design. The stitches used in this project are a combination of basic and less common embroidery stitches to add interest and variation.

The detailed instructions and diagrams will help guide you step by step through the project however, you might find it helpful to have a stitch directory at hand – I always do.

The shape and size of the panel is perfect for a square pillow, which is what I did with mine. It would look equally stunning framed or make a fabulous large work bag.

I hope you will get as much pleasure embroidering your Scarlet Glory as I did.

Happy Stitching, Anna

    Beautiful colours and design. Thank you Anna! This project was an absolute joy to work. Good instructions which were easy to follow. Thrilled with the end result and can’t wait to stitch another of your designs in the Alps this summer.
