Golden Seed Pod

Golden Seed Pod is a metal thread embroidery. Join us in stitching this exquisite seed pod!  We will be using smooth, gilt bright check purl, pearl purl super, #1 Japan gold, #5 Check Thread, and #5 Japan gold to create this beautiful piece. 


The ground fabric is Congress Cloth in black.  Wool felt is used for padding the seed pod, and waxed cord forms the foundation of the stem.  4-way continental stitch is used to stitch the husks.  You will be creating  circles, making chips for the outer part of the pod, appliquéing stiffened gold metallic organza  as the leaves foundations.

Diagonal satin stitch forms the outer layer of the stem.


The kit will contain the materials needed to finish the kit.  Also included will be needles and an illustrated instruction booklet.
