Botanical Dreaming – Bell-pull


Botanical Dreaming – Decorative Bell-pull
Finished size – 5 1/2″ x 27 3/4″

– Five botanical themed blocks make up this small wallhanging, designed in the style of a traditional bell-pull. Embroidery, fusible applique and dimensional petals & leaves combine to create this decorative piece for the home.

– Each block is embroidered with simple stitches, appliqued and embellished with leaves or petals cut from easily made “double-sided fabric”. They are attached to the blocks with central embroidery, leaving the edges free to sit up a little from the background. This adds a subtle dimensional quality to the design. Braids created with embroidery thread are tied together at the top, to create a simple hanger for your wall hanging.

– The “Botanical Dreaming – bell pull” pattern includes full sized pattern sheets and comprehensive instructions filled with photographic and illustrated detail.

– A small project for the home or to create as a gift… this unique design can be made in fabrics to suit any decor.
