National Sewing Month

Day 17

Variation on a Theme

These pieces and the project can be found in my book, Beaded Embroidery Stitching.

The two wall hangings are versions of the Bouquet of Flowers, project A Feminine Fancies. The base of the black piece is silk, with vintage lace used for the frame. Vintage mother-of-pearl buttons were used for the flower centers and the encrusted frame, with lots of beaded embroidery stitches. The base of the second piece is pieced with a blue chambray fabric and a whimsical bee print. The vase and the frame are made with vintage lace, with vintage and new buttons for the flower centers, and floral frame. Vintage and new beads and charms were used for decoration.

Happy Stitching, ~Christen
