Shipping calculated at checkout.
Light and lovely tropical flowers, these realistic Cymbidium Orchids will glow with bright and beautiful rayon floss.
The 5” circular design features several original Millefiori techniques – bundled bullions and detached buttonhole form the orchid’s cup, which is edged with the up-down detached buttonhole stitch. Background orchid petals are stitched with a double buttonhole stitch and the dimensional petals with the original woven picot bullion, featuring a new ‘twist’ for this design. Automatic couching for fine growth becomes a couching stitch itself for a second color, and tiny beads add sparkle.
The border is also a Millefiori original -- the versatile interlocking stem stitch.This is an advanced level Brazilian embroidery design.
The single cymbidium orchid shown is from the book, My LadyFlowers by Rosalie Wakefield.
