Fantasy Flowers

Flowers picked from two bouquets have been the starting point for this tablecloth’s fantasy flowers. Finished size 65 x 40 cm. Embroidered on 8 threaded linen canvas.

The flowers are drawn directly on the fabric, and the outline is embroidered with 2 threads in the needle. It is embroidered with flora-cotton from fru zippe.

The structure of the flowers emerges when embroidering with 1 thread in the needle with whole and half cross stitches. That is, each flower is embroidered with just one color.

Angel 2021

Embroidered on linen canvas (8 threads per cm.), with full cross stitches and contour stitches.

Threads used:

  • 341 flora-cotton from fru zippe (or 310 from DMC)
  • E 168 SILVER from DMC

Finished size approx. 35 x 55 cm.

Optional: I have pulled threads out of the fabric to create a lace-like effect from edge to edge.

Pleated Oak

Some years ago, our old oak tree was felled. I saved a few small pieces. They now form a pattern on this small tablecloth. The pattern is made with full and half cross stitches, back stitches and contour stitches on linen canvas. Finished size is approx. 27 x 27 cm. I am very happy about the result!

Christmas

Use this as a tablecloth or, as shown, a runner. Size approx. 124 x 75 cm. Stitched on linen (10 threads pr. cm.) with flora-cotton (1 thread), or DMC (two threads) using cross, back, contour, and quadratic stitches. Continue the pattern all the way to the edges of the linen.
