Handcrafted Rose Brazilian Embroidery

Have you heard about Brazilian embroidery? Yes, it was somewhat originated from Brazil. It uses high-sheen rayon thread, unlike most embroidery type which uses wool or cotton. The use of rayon thread was popularized in Brazil when the thread was widely manufactured there.

Brazilian embroidery is a surface type of embroidery. The pattern is formed using a cast on and knotted stitches.

Brazilian embroidery stitches will use the following stitches

  • Bullion – Milliners needles are used here to make these stitches.
  • Cast-on Buttonhole – Milliners needles are used as well in this kind of stitch. Variations for the stitch include loose cast-on, up-down cast-on, and double cast-on.
  • Couching – called as fine growth stitch as this is used in creating lines of fine growth.
  • Detached Buttonhole – worked over straight stitch.
  • Drizzle – worked like a one-point cast-on buttonhole.
  • Leaf – satin stitch and is mainly used in creating leaf design.
  • Pistil or Long-Tailed French Knot – straight stitch with a French knot attached at the end.
  • Stem – a twisted rope that is used in creating stem designs.
