Florentine Embroidery

Florentine Embroidery makes a very pretty filling for open or cut out spaces in a design, simulating as it does drawn work, or punched work. Leaf and flower forms as well as bars are pretty when filled in with this stitch.

Foundation threads at even intervals are put across the space to be filled and then the filling stitches are put in as shown at Fig. 1.

The edge D A B is then padded and covered with the Satin stitch. Last, cut away the linen that is back of the Florentine work leaving the open work.
