Beau Bands - Drawn Thread Version



This version of Beau Bands was designed as a learning band sampler of speciality stitches and drawn-thread bands, to be made up into a "Hussif" - a special pocket 'roll' for storing all your needlework tools such as scissors, needles, laying tools, pins, threads, and so on.  However it can also be finished as a bell-pull or a framed piece.

This is an excellent sampler for those who enjoy lots of counted-thread embroidery techniques, including drawn-thread, pulled-thread, and hardanger, bargello, cross-stitch and lots of speciality stitches.  The sampler uses just 3 colours of thread, with optional touches of metallic thread, beads, and silk ribbon - you are encouraged to chose your own colour-scheme.

Instructions are detailed and come with clear, original diagrams.  Included are making-up instructions for the hussif, although this sampler also makes a lovely framed project or a bell-pull.
