'Natalie' is a whitework and pulled thread embroidery sampler. Worked in white with the central motif leftblank for an initial, it can be used as a ring pillow. Pulled thread work 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: 28 count evenweave fabric; DMC floss or pearl cotton #12.
