Sweet Honeysuckle is an ideal first project if you have no prior experience with Raised Embroidery. I do recommend that you have a bit of experience with general embroidery stitches and are comfortable stitching with fine threads.
Sweet Honeysuckle was inspired by Elizabethan flower motifs, tweaked with a touch of Art Nouveau to create a more flowering and organic design. The pink honeysuckle flowers are stitched in softly shaded silk threads with touches of yellow and metallic gold, onto a pale spring green silk fabric. A fluffy bumble bee with delicate organza wings is busily buzzing among the flowers.
Sweet Honeysuckle introduces you to some of the basic raised embroidery techniques such as felt padding, simple wired shapes and using needleweaving to create raised and semidetached elements. The detailed instructions and diagrams will help guide you step by step through the project.
The embroidery design measures 11.5cm (4 1/2") in diameter
