Design Workshop Tips from the Hand Embroidery Dictionary
Embroidered Base Designs
The construction of the fabric base will determine the overall design of the embroidery and embellishments. The fabric base can begin as a solid-color wholecloth base, a base with one or more printed fabrics, or a foundation strip- or crazy-pieced design.
Fabrics with stripes, circles, or squares can be used as a guide for evenly spaced embroidery stitches. Printed fabrics that have a realistic pattern of waves, leaves or flowers offer many possibilities for embroidery.
