This tuition page, which includes a 18¼ minute video clip in high resolution with voice over instruction, teaches you how to work the needle lace filler that is used in the ear of Shirley the Elephant from the Crewel Creatures book.
Work through the video clip with perle no. 5 thread on circle that measures 25 mm in diameter. Weave through the needle lace with 4 mm ribbon and twisted perle no. 12 thread. Then, when you are satisfied that you are beginning to understand the concept, particularly the tension, you work the technique using finer and finer thread – first perle #8, then perle #12 and even Dentelles #80.
Once you have worked through the stitch using the diagram and instructions, in tandem with the video clip on the tuition page, you should be in a position to use this stitch in your embroidery project.
