The cutwork butterfly is worked with basic stitches which can be cut out and used as an appliqué or left on the ground fabric as the focal point of a towel, quilt square, or item of choice. Shadow work is stitched on the back side of a sheer fabric allowing the color to show through and create a gentle ‘shadowed’ pattern. Trapunto is a lovely embellishment for clothing or decorative use in the home, by running a cord or yarn through a stitched channel. Shadow work and trapunto can be incorporated into the same design to form an interesting pattern. The cut work can be used as an ‘add on’ such as a flower or butterfly. Each technique is written for the beginner who will be well versed by the final stitches. All projects are quick, inexpensive, and fun to do.
