It took six hours to embroider your one of a kind elegant Schwalm butterfly. I started by stitching a tiny chain stitch along the wing’s edge using hand-dyed silk. This line of stitches then got covered with buttonhole stitch giving the wings a pretty pearly edging. During the next step, I removed every fourth thread in both directions from the fine linen ground fabric. The formed grid was then filled with two different Schwalm patterns: Gefieder (feathers) for the bottom wings and Herzchen (hearts) for the upper wings. I carefully cut out the upper wings and attached them to the ground fabric. Thanks to the paper-covered wire added in with the stitching, the wings can be bend in a more life-like position. To complete the butterfly, I added a bit of fluffy hand-dyed silken chenille. The finished butterfly was then mounted into a 4cm Dandelyne wooden mini-hoop. To protect your butterfly from dust and dirt, it sits behind glass in a 15x15x1,7cm wooden frame. Incl. 19% VAT, excl. shipping.
