An Embroided Bed!
I bought this beautiful white bed without the roses on the headboard! I forgot to take a photo of the "before", but I can show you the process!
As it is made with "esterilla" (HELP English speakers! I don´t know what is the word for this! I think the material is wicker braided in small squares). I thought I could use these little squares to embroider something in cross stitch.
I collected many patterns from the web but I had a difficulty: the number of squares I had was very reduced, and that meant the number of stitches I could make wasn't as many. So I went looking for a different pattern and I found this pattern with more or less the width and length I needed. Off to work!
I didn´t work with thread as in a normal embroidery but rather with ribbons that covered the size of holes I had.
Work in progress....
... and final result!
A lovely and unique bed!
To be honest, at the beginning I thought I would embroid the footboard as well. But after the headboard work, it was really exhausting, so I decided not to! Anyway, I love the way it looks!
Enjoyed the project?

Jeri on Dec 27, 2017No question I just had to comment! That is the most beautiful bed I think I've ever seen! 💖 That you "embroidered" the roses into the wicker is amazing and a technique I have never seen before and would have never thought of in a million years! It gives me great ideas for future caning/wicker pieces tho!! 💖
