Cutwork embroidery is an enchanting and eye-pleasing form of needlework where portions of the background fabric, as the name suggests, are cut out and discarded, while the edges are worked over in variety of stitches - satin and buttonhole stitches being the ones used the most.
There are many kinds of cutwork, the simplest being Broderie Anglaise while the most elaborate of all is the Reticella cutwork. Reticella cutwork is the ultimate and most elaborate of all cutwork. It is just one step away from needle made lace.
The basic steps into employing cutwork are the following...
linen, cotton, embroidery floss, scissors, lots of patience
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
