Description
Raised Embroidery
** LEVEL 2 **

Strawberry Feast is an ideal project if you are comfortable with general embroidery stitches and have a little experience with Raised Embroidery.

Strawberry Feast was inspired by an antique botanical print of a wild strawberry plant. Strawberry plants will flower and bear fruit at the same time making them a fabulous subject for decorative embroidery. A cheeky snail is slowly making her way up the plant for a taste of the plump ripe berries, while a hungry bee is drawn to the scent of the delicate strawberry flowers.

Similar in size and stitched onto the same fabric, Strawberry Feast make a nice companion to Toadstools & Brambles.

Strawberry Feast is embroidered with silk threads using mostly common embroidery stitches onto natural coloured linen-cotton fabric. Layers of felt is used to pad the plump strawberries. The berries are covered with laidwork and have woven picot sepals. The dainty flowers are semi-detached with fluffy Ghiordes knot centers and detached, wired leaves add dimension to the foliage.

The detailed instructions and diagrams will help guide you step by step through the project.

I hope you will get as much pleasure embroidering your Strawberry Feast as I did.

Happy Stitching, Anna
