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.
