Celtic Flowers Pillow- traditional embroidery stitches

Celtic Flowers Pillow

Celtic Flowers Pillow

I have two book shelves on either side of my sewing table, and I placed an old pantry door on top to create a shelf. I placed many of my dolls in groups on top of this shelf, and the smaller pillows such as this one reside there

The fabric is a silk shantung, embroidered with pearl cotton thread. The stitches I used are:

  • woven rose
  • whipped spider web rose
  • cast-on buttonhole stitch pansy
  • lazy daisy
  • straight stitch
  • detached chain stitch leaf
  • chain stitch
  • Chinese knot

After the pillow was sewn and stuffed, I added a rayon cord to the edges to finish off the piece.

5-1/2″ wide x 6 ” tall

Happy stitching, enjoy your creative adventures! Christen
