Keepsake Treasure Boxes in Hardanger Embroidery I #0443
- Intermediate Skill level
When asked to design a Hardanger piece that would showcase an antique Cameo pin of her grandmothers, Roz told Chris S. she would be happy to take on the challenge! One thing led to another when Megan brought two of her Grandmother's Cameo's and other pieces, and Roz found more jewelry pieces in her own collection. It doesn't have to be a Cameo. Roz has plans to create more designs in the near future. What great gifts these will be for family members on any special occasion. With one piece displayed on top of the box, store more keepsakes inside the box!
Several box options are pictured as well as sizes given for stitching on several different counts of fabric. All designs shown were stitched on 32 count white or ivory Lugana with DMC size #12 pearl cotton to fit the boxes shown. Use thread colors listed or to match your own treasures that you will attach to the Hardanger design.
Each of these three designs includes charts, photos, and general stitch and finishing instructions; 14 pages in all.
