So I finally finished one of my on going projects. It is a hood of light weight burgundy wool with hand embroidered appliques. They are embroidered on than wool with teal silk in a split stitch. The hood is sewn by hand in black silk thread. I love this it is light weight and I can wear it at most events without getting too hot. Now I am thinking about making hand wrapped buttons to close up the front instead of my clasp. Will have to think more on it.
This is a close up of the applique. I stitched the pattern, then applied it to the hood. I was thinking of putting an edging around it, the jury is still out on that one.
