Primitive Blackwork

Project Description

What was your source for this embroidery project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Bless Our Home BlackWork Link to website or photo www.birdbraindesigns.net/products/765-bless-our-home-blackwork.aspx What are you most proud of? how well these turn out.....everyone who sees them loves them.... What advice would you give someone starting this project? the main thing is be sure the black walnut stained background is evenly stained.....be sure to dissolve the walnut stain crystals fully before dying the cotton....I tried tea dying but you don't get the same effect.....if you don't fully dissolve the crystals..the fabric will dye blotchy....fortunately, you can re wash the fabric and start over.....

What you will need

  • I always use recycled material when I can....I walnut stain old cotton sheets for the backgrounds...100% cotton are the best...
