Silk Embroidery

This was my first attempt to do embroidery in silk.
I made a panache on my new blue cap.

It really came about because I'm a klutz and was constantly smashing my feathers. I'd seen Fiona stitching one and thought that was the best solution for me.

I used the Button Hole Stitch for the bezant and then back stitch and satin stitch for the feathers.

I'm quite happy with the result and I'm planning some more silk embroidery in the future.

That's a very good idea :)

Looks awesome Emma! I like the buttonhole stitch for the round bit. Did you have that at Nibelungan?
