More Hedebo stitching

This is the second piece of Hedebo stitching that I did in Denmark. It is slightly different from the first one and I was able to do most of it rather quickly. Contrary to techniques like Hardanger and drawn thread, you first cut the threads and then start securing them. I must admit at first it was a little scary, but once you get used to it, it’s not scarier than cutting threads for other techniques.

And a few more pictures of antique Hedebo pieces that I saw in musea. I loved seeing how they used needlework to adorn their clothing.

One thought on “More Hedebo stitching

  1. Hee Annemiek,

    Je bent er weer! En hoe!
    Wat heb je een boel prachtige dingen gemaakt zeg. Net als jij ben ik ook een groot fan van huisjes, katten en Prairie Schooler, leuk om te lezen dat ik niet de enige ben.

    Groetjes Betty
