By Ingrid Bjernefors Dahlman

for Nordiska, 1960’s

Fabric: approximately 37 cm x 35 cm, print 12 cm tall x 8 cm wide. 
The print is positioned slightly to the right to leave fabric for a backing if you choose to make a small purse/pocket. 

Ingrid’s Dance of the Flowers (Blommornas Dans) was originally printed on green linen fabric and it was intended that it would be made into a wall hanging or cushion. Here we have chosen a part of Blommornas Dans/Dance of the Flowers for everyone who would like to try something small before embarking on a larger project. This print is now supplied without threads, providing you with the opportunity to select your own palette to stitch with. The linen fabric has been screen printed in Sweden not far from the archive.
 The card shows part of the original kit instructions, and part of the original pattern drawings made prior to production of the kits.

 

The stitches used are:

stjälksöm - stem stitch

schattersöm - flat stitch or long-and-short stitch

lättsöm - laisy daisy stitch

kopplad sticksöm - split stitch

knutar  - French knots

 

For the French knots, wind the thread around the needle twice.
