I love to do my 16th and 17th century embroideries, and have been trying to find
a way to use my skills in a way that will be relevant today. Samplers are great
hanging on a wall, and sweet bags are spiffy at an SCA event, but I wanted
something that I could use in my 21st century life. I designed a purse, an
evening baga purse, an evening bag, that will have coiling goldwork vines of
plaited braid, and polychrome silk embroidery. My plan is to do it on black
linen, but I have no clue of how to effectively transfer the design. My thought
process was to perhaps pounce it with a light powder and then do a tiny light
coloured running stitch around the entire design. In theory that is not such a
bad idea, but it will sure add a lot of work to the project.
Does anyone have a better idea?
