My goal here is that you gain at least one or two things that help you with questions you have about finishing berries and/or stitching on silk gauze. It will never be the same as me or anyone else sitting with you and coaching you through, but these will certainly provide you with a great start.
A page with basic templates I use for berry top treatments is available for download here.
- An Overview
- Preparing Silk Gauze for Stitching
- Getting Started on Silk Gauze
- The Continental Stitch
- The Basketweave Stitch
Since I began designing for silk gauze, a page was inserted into each chartpak with basic stitch diagrams and instructions for mounting the silk gauze. In order to save a few extra trees, this page will no longer be included - rather, you can download it here, or refer to the tutorials presented here. Thank you.
In the fall of 2020, it became apparent that a reliable source for silk gauze was increasingly hard to find. Therefore, Petites Collection chartpaks no longer include a cut of silk gauze. When a new source becomes available I will certainly design with it once again and include it with any of those new designs.
