The intricate look of Madeira applique and lace shaping can be achieved in minutes with today’s machines and notions. Does anything compare to handkerchief linen and French lace - especially in white and ecru? The elegance of a finely-stitched tea or hand towel can be yours, as you learning two of heirloom sewing’s most beloved techniques. The scalloped Madeira border is created with wash-away thread along with a little folding, a little starching and a little pressing. Voila - you have a border!! The lace heart is comprised of curves and miters, techniques used constantly in lace shaping. Both the border and the heart are stitched into place using a large needle and a pinstitch. What can we say but “it’s all in the details!” This stunning towel will be a treasure, but best of all, you’ll be able to incorporate these specialty techniques in your other projects from now on.
