This amazing embroidery is the subject of the instruction book Primavera. Using the basic stitches of Brazilian Embroidery, Primavera is definitely "springtime" for any needle artist! Pattern and kit come with the book included. Stitchers who prefer the kit will appreciate having all the strands presorted and labeled by weight and color for your convenience.
Brazilian embroidery is a type of highly textured surface embroidery that uses rayon thread instead of cotton or wool, first popularized in Brazil. Patterns usually include flowers formed using both knotted and cast on stitches. Although many of these stitches are used in other forms of embroidery, the technique used to create them is slightly different, and the result is a 3-dimensional work of art!
