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.
