Detail from a larger artwork by Birgitta Salenius for Nordiska, 1960’s
Fabric: approximately 37 cm x 35 cm, print 15 cm tall x 12 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.
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.
