Schwalm Whitework – An Apron Square Design

The aesthetic sense and impressive creativity that was able to create the beautiful apron squares inspired me to produce similar designs suitable for whitework. I sent pictures of my entire collection of apron squares and their templates to a designer, and I received in return wonderful square patterns.

One template – for me especially interesting because it included bird motifs – was the inspiration for a design.
I used the newly created line-drawn design to embroider a square pillowcase measuring 40 cm X 40 cm.
I chose an old handwoven linen because I particularly like white embroidery done on a natural colour linen; I think the combination is very pretty.
The shapes were filled with a combination of traditional and new filling patterns.
The result is a very successful adaptation of traditional Schwalm accessory design to contemporary whitework. I’ll tell you about the other designs inspired by apron squares soon.
