Belle Of The Gray Ball E-Pattern - Penny Rug Victorian Dress Picture Decoration - Victorian Dresses Series
I just love Victorian Era dresses and also love creating penny rug pictures using wool felt and thought penny rug Victorian dress picture decorations would be nice. So, my Victorian Dresses Series was born.
Belle Of The Gray Ball is an e-pattern to create two 8" by 8" Victorian wool felt dress pictures in 10" by 10" purchased picture frames with a Victorian dresses in a penny rug style design.
The felt dress piece is embroidered to the felt background and the felt dress overskirt piece is embroidered to the felt dress piece. Lace trims, seed beads, and other embellishments are sewn to the dress and overskirt piece.
The base and back lining are blanket stitch embroidered along the edges. Lazy daisy flowers are embroidered to surround the dress design.
The pattern can be made as just a penny rug wool felt blanket stitched picture or enclosed within a wall picture frame or tabletop picture frame.
The pattern includes text instructions, step-by-step color diagrams for finishing the penny rug dress pictures from start to finish, full page picture layout sheet, and full page single sided pattern piece sheets. The pattern also includes step-by-step illustrations and instructions for Basic Blanket Stitching and Lazy Daisy Flower Instructions.
