So nice ! Does it works also with fray check ?

This is a great tutorial on using pearl purl for detached embroidery. Thank you!

Elmsley Rose

Thankyou SO much for this tutorial!

The other method you mentioned
"With this method the petals are made firstly by stitching button hole over fine covered wire to create the edge of the petal and then filling the centre of the petal as you would for conventional stumpwork detached elements. Gold passing thread is then attached to the buttonhole edge using clear monofilament thread."

Can you do a step by step for that method (pretty please?? eyelash flutter) or does the above explanation really say it all?

Thankyou again,

Elmsley Rose, glad you foud this tutorial useful. I have been busily preparing a tutorial on applying the passing thread. Couln't resist the eyelash flutter - gets me every time!!! Of course it was just the push I needed to create a new design so the example you see will be part of my new stumpwork project.

I haven't tried using fray stop but would be a little concerned about the chemical makeup of it and how this may react with the metal in the wires. Have you ever noticed how fray stop will remove the nail polish from your nails when they come in contact with each other? Oooooh, not good!


Hi Sandy!

Why do you put glue around the edge for this thread, but not the other one you did a tutorial for?

Your favourite co-worker :)

This is a amazing post, I located your webpage looking around google for a related content and arrived to this. I couldnt come across to much alternative info on this write-up, so it was good to locate this one. I will likely be back to look at some other articles that you have another time.

I think it's time for me to learn handicrafts and embroideries! Haha! I'm going to marry a girl who loves such things, and I still haven't tried doing them! Maybe now's the moment to try and deliberate your tutorial for her. Thanks! Guess I'd be presenting her a unique flower "on fabric" next time. ;)
