Tulip Garden 7883
Unnamed artist for Nordiska, 1963
Originally a small cushion (circa 30x32 cm), Tulip 7883 is a fun pattern to embroider with a mix of seven simple stitches.
In this kit you will receive a printed sheet of beautiful linen, ca 100cm x 50 cm which you can fold and sew into a cushion cover of 45 x 45 cm.
12 skeins of linen thread are included, together with three chenille needles on a vintage paper cut.
We have not found a sheet of the original colour and stitch chart, but you can follow the shades of light and dark and see the stitches on the original drawing.
We will also include a stitch card with 24 common stitches of 60's linen embroidery, and a little note about the origins of the Tulip design.
The card shows the pattern drawing made prior to production of the kits.
The stitches used are:
stem stitch - chain stitch - satin stitch - lazy daisy stitch
y-stitch - split stitch - couching stitch
