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.
Once the base of the project is designed, pieces of trim, ribbon, bits of lace, or appliqués can be added for additional design opportunities. The embroidery can be worked on the edges or through the width of the trim or lace, with the same stitch or with different stitches.
