Brenda Scarman and Elizabethan embroidery 26th Oct 2012

She put together a kit for us to make her Elizabethan scissors case, part of a chaterlaine. The central aspect of this work was to learn detatched button hole stitch. Certainly this stitch puts all the expensive thread on show on the front of piece with very little on the back.
