Summer is in full swing and with the 4th of July right around the corner, it’s a great time to brighten up your home with some bright colors and playful prints! One of my favorite ways to add color and detail to a space is through crewel.
Crewel embroidery, or Crewelwork, is a form of decorative surface embroidery that uses a variety of stitches to follow a design outline applied to a fabric.
Here are some of my favorite applications, and some photos to inspire you!
Crewel Embroidery can be used on decorative pillows…
Ankasa Fern Textiles from Trowbridge (above) can also been seen in Carrie and Mr. Big’s apartment in Sex and the City 2!
…and on larger furniture pieces to tie an entire room together!
Happy Red, White, and
