Here comes the March Embroidery Club project and designs. This beautiful dinner roll holder is so simple and so elegant. when choosing the embroidery, I felt that the design had to match the sophistication of the project. To me cutwork is both beautiful and elegant and definitely a match for the look of the project.
Three simple circles make up the dinner roll holder. The embroidered circle is the base. It’s a medium weight linen. The top and middle layers are of cotton organdy, finished with a delicate hem stitch. Cotton organdy is a sheer crisp cotton. As it is not always easy to find, you can substitute with a lightweight linen or medium weight cotton. We used medium weight 100% linen for the base layer.
You can also make it from your favorite print and coordinating solids. Here’s a sample using a print as the base and a coordinating solid for the middle and top layers. Cut out the pattern twice from the print and fuse the two layers together with Steam a Seam II, a fusible web with release sheet. They're all finished with bias binding.
