This seam was embellished with a line of tied herringbone stitch which was decorated with detached chain stitch, straight stitch, jewellery findings and seed beads.
The herringbone is worked in rayon ribbon floss. The detached chain is worked in perle thread #8 and the straight stitches are worked in stranded cotton floss
Placement and Foundation Fabric:
This seam is between piece 1 and piece 2 on block 8. In the same article I also talked about the foundation fabrics I used.
I used jewellery findings that are in the shape of flowers and attached them with seed beads
