Hattie's Pincushion


The very tall and beautiful pink garden perennial, Astrantia, is also known as Masterwort, Melancholy Gentleman or Hattie’s Pincushion. Its beautiful seed pods are often used in dried arrangements. This flower is translated into Brazilian dimensional embroidery using the delightful and original drizzleberry technique developed by Rosalie Wakefield.  

Design size: 6" x 8".

In addition, a new arrangement of cast-on stitches is used to complete other Astrantia flower varieties on this design, and the seed pods are finished with beadwork, satin and cast-on stitches. Hiding in the shadows of leaves and stems edged with the versatile Brazilian Couching technique are two very cute little  “pincushion” hedgehogs, stitched with Rosalie’s original barbed bullions and beady little eyes and noses. A stitch guide and finishing suggestions are included with all Millefiori designs. This is an advanced level Brazilian embroidery design.
