Today I've been using them in embroidery and stitched onto some vintage linens.
I needed to pull the Viola apart and peel the paper backing from the back.
The bullion stitch has been worked with two strands of thread and the French knots with six strands. I added a few seed beads to give a little sparkle
On the single Hydrangea flower I've used silk perle for the bullion stitch and the central French knots
then a normal Perle for the woven flower.These are a wonderful addition to crazy quilting, embroidery, collages, journals, the list is endless.
I have lots of these flower for sale in beautiful vintage shades
They will be in my Etsy shop soon, meanwhile just email if you would like to purchase any of them.
They are just £2 a pack/ 3.5 US $ plus shipping.
