Four Palestinian Designs – No 4

I have now finished the fourth of the Palestinian designs – Beads.  This one comes from Gaza.

The next stage is to add a border to each of the four designs.  For this I have chosen another Palestinian design.  It is known as Bachelor’s Cushion.   The borders will be stitched in dark blue violet, very dark emerald green and very light old gold.  Below you can see what Beads and Kohl Holder look like finished with a border.

  1. Hi, Alister7. I also enjoyed the excellent video I found on Youtube about the Palestinian design book you mentioned. Thanks for putting up that post. I will add a link to the video on my blog, in addition to the link to your post.

  2. erin2012 – thanks for your comments. It is a lovely book and a wonderful introduction to a relatively unknown embroidery tradition. Liked the video, which I had never seen before.
