THIS IS A DIGITAL PDF PATTERN
Three French Boutis Ornaments easily stitched by sewing two pieces of batiste together by hand with a running stitch over the lines of the pattern. From the back yarn is then drawn through the channels and motifs creating a raised relief to the piece. The ancient art of French Boutis is reversible and translucent allowing light to pass through illuminating the design. You will fall in love with the beauty of this delicate needle work!
These 3.5" ornaments are a quick and easy way to try this exquisite needlework technique. It is a great project for a small needlework group as well.
