For my new project (from a cope), I have a lovely purple shot with red slubbed silk for the purple background.
The only red I have is a satin. It's about 1/3 of the weight of the slubbed silk. I intend to pad the dragon and the cross, and there's all that purl - it'll be quite heavy. Do you think I can use the satin with perhaps a double layer of muslim, or is it better to buy in some dupion and not take chances?
You've lost me, I'm afraid, dear lady.
"The cap will need to be washed as it is meant to be". What is "as it is meant to be".? What process for washing gold embroidery. I have always read/been told that it couldn't be. Or have I got the wrong end of the stick here somewhere?
