Turkey Work Embroidery Stitch with Lorna Bateman
Classes with Lorna Bateman • Educational, G, 08-Jul-2022
Lorna’s book, Embroidered Country Garden, is available in the justhands-on.tv shop. It has many wonderful ideas and patterns to inspire you to create beautiful hand-stitched floral designs inspired by nature.
In this video, Lorna demonstrates the turkey work stitch, or tufting, which creates a delightful soft 3D effect. You can use this stitch to create the flowers on thistles or the centre of the clematis flower, the body of a bumblebee maybe, or even a soft body for a caterpillar.
Lorna likes to use stranded threads, rather than perle, as she feels these give a better finished result. And check out her suggestions for the travel toothbrush and sellotape!
