Cherry Tree Pattern ScarfJulie Elvidge Emroidery
A sand coloured soft linen scarf, hand block printed with pink cherry blossom flowers on an embroidered tree. Hand drawn images of cherry blossom flowers and buds were hand carved by me into a block. I embroidered the tree using free motion machine embroidery using my domestic sewing machine and mixed the shade of pink and hand printed the flowers and buds onto a piece of linen fabric, one flower and bud at a time and one scarf at a time, I then sewed the fabric into a scarf. As each scarf is individually embroidered and printed by hand it is unique, flower and bud placement may vary on each scarf and each scarf may contain small ink marks, these ink marks should in no way detract from the pattern when worn. The flowers and buds have been printed using an environmentally friendly 100% solvent free textile ink and were heat set according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This scarf has been pre-shrunk, I recommend hand washing your scarf but avoid the use of bleaching or whitening products and do not tumble dry. Iron on the back using a medium heat, spray starching your scarf reduces creasing and will add body.
