This simply stitched design may be framed or made into a pillow suitable for a wedding or christening. Additional traceable letters are included if the stitcher wishes to change the date or add initials.
Stem and outline stitch are used to create the bell, ribbon and letters. The edge of the bell is stitched with cast-on stitches, a tiny bead nestled within each. Buds are made with cast-on stitches and a loop of beads for added sparkle.
The ribbon is stitched with Glory and edged with the Reverse Colonial Knot (my preferred substitute for a French knot) - instructions included. The flowers at the top of the bell are made with a variation of my original stitch technique, the Canada’s Rose.
Design: 9½” x 9½” on 15” x 15” fabric
