Nell Burns Thread Bowl


Nell Burns is amazing. This bowl is hauntingly beautiful. It is made up entirely of layers of stitches on water soluble fabric. The fabric is washed away and the threads are left. This is just one of the amazing pieces of art she has created. Is it wrong that I want to dive into one of her beautiful structures?

Hi, I'm Pam - I've been a moderator for the Needlework boards on Craftster since 2004 and you can also see me in the Craftster Quickies video series.

I am a lover of all things vintage but I particularly have a fondness for vintage embroidery patterns, which I collect every chance I can get!
