More about this digital file


This charming little sachet, in shades of blue and white, is the perfect introduction to the technique of Deruta Sfilato, drawn thread work from the heart of Italy.

Working on very low-count linen, threads are clipped and withdrawn, leaving an open grid that is embellished with stitches using two weights of crochet cotton.
