Hand Stitched Braid – Vintage Embroidery And Sewing Techniques Part 13

Hand Stitched Braid - Vintage Embroidery And Sewing Techniques Part 13

In the final part of my 1950s embroidery and sewing series I’m showing you this pretty sampler of a hand-stitched braid.

I think the pretty braid is made like this: Two loose interlacing catch stitches are stitched by hand so that the white thread forms loops. Then while arranging the loops with a needle so that the loops interlock, it’s sewn through the middle with small machine stitches.

The wrong side is finished with a ribbon.

The ribbon is stitched down through the middle and at the sides (the side stitches are invisible on the right side of the fabric).

 

Here you’ll find part 12 (soutache, rick rack and velvet ribbon trims) of the 1950s embroidery series.
