Easter Shadow Work

These designs mimic the gently colored heirloom look of hand embroidered, shadow work. Done by hand, shadow work utilizes embroidery floss, drawn across the back of the fabric to “fill in” an area outlined with simple straight stitches. A type of reverse appliqué (applying the fabric to the wrong side of the project fabric) and tiny satin stitch edging creates the same delicate look when done with an embroidery machine.

There are 24 designs in this set. The large border designs require a 5x7 hoop. The rest of the designs may be stitched in a 4x4 hoop.

Machine shadow work requires the use of white, sheer or semi-sheer project fabric. Organdy, silk organza, handkerchief linen, voile and very fine batiste work well for projects using these designs. The shadow appliqué fabric that will be applied to the wrong side of the project fabric to provide the colored shadow works best if it is crisp and lightweight. Fine cotton fabrics or sheer fabrics such as silk organza and cotton organdy work best.

PDF instructions with step-by-step photos are included as well as PDF design templates to print. Please read carefully before beginning.
