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.
The embroidery Design on a pieced base can be worked on one or both sides of the seam or straddling the seam; the stitches can also be worked into the open spaces between seams. The length of the seam and the section of fabric between the adjacent seams will determine the size of the embroidered row and any additional stitched components.
