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.
