3a.   Hare & Strawberries

This is a typical Elizabethan design of a hare surrounded with strawberries stitched in detached buttonhole stitch. For this class students can choose to stitch design in either Gumnut yarn “stars” silks or DMC Coton a Broder 25 threads, allowing those students who struggle with the finer threads the opportunity to work an animal with a heavier thread.   In this project you will explore the use of detached buttonhole and variations to learn the art of creating three dimensional effects. 

Skill Level:  Some embroidery experience


Kit cost –  Gumnut Yarn “Stars” silks $50.00
