A Keepsake

A valued client of a valued client of mine had a scrap of embroidered linen and velvet, leftover from this campaign bed hanging we made for her last year.

All she asked us to do was to serge it so the raggedy edges wouldn't unravel, but I wanted to do better than that. 

A scrap of heavy linen, very similar to the velvet's base linen, just the right size, became the backing.  By folding it over to the right side, it also became a binding.  (I love binding!)

My valued client wanted the tag left on.  No problem.

We left the selvedge intact.
Now she has her scrap, beautifully finished in a style that is both rustic and elegant, appropriate to the fabric and her vision of it.
