This is a pulled thread sampler worked on evenweave fabric with a free style outline. Pulled thread embroidery is a counted embroidery technique, worked on a loosely woven evenweave fabric. Stitches are worked around groups of threads in the fabric and pulled, using the tension of the stitches to form gaps, creating lacy, open fillings, bands, border and hems. It is usually worked in white thread on white fabric, but can also be worked with coloured threads. Suggested supplies: 10" x 12" piece of 28 count evenweave fabric; DMC floss, pearl cotton #12, and Diamant.
