Collection: Nordiska Tulip 7409

Tulip 7409

By Ingrid Bjernefors-Dahlman for Nordiska, 1962. 

 

Tulip 7409 is back!

For the new series of Nordiska Tulip 7409, we include a large copy of the hand drawn archive sample poster which shows the original colours and stitches. This poster was used both within the design studio, and in the Nordiska flagship store for customers to bring home when embroidering a kit. When the piece was finished, the customer would return the poster for the next customer to use. A little bit like a library, but with the materials produced and sold exclusively by Nordiska.

The linen colours we use today are different from what was available in the 1960’s, and this chart will help you decide where to use light and dark tones from your selected colours.

Eight simple stitches are used for Tulip 7409: Satin stitch, split stitch, stem stitch, chain stitch, lazy Daisy, Y-stitch, couching stitch and French knots.  

The colour/stitch instruction sheet is an exact copy of the 1962 original, we have not changed a thing. The colour chart instructed us how much yarn to add to the kit, and we have used five colours, just as the original. 

The stitch to use is clearly marked out in the drawing as you can see here in the listing. Chain stitch is drawn as a chain stitch etc.
Make the stitches long or short depending on your own preferences. 

A beginner can easily embroider this kit, especially if you enjoy improvising. 

We printed this design in the early days of Nordiska's reawakening, and you can find many samples on instagram searching with tag #nordiskaembroidery
