71  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Newbie: To couch or to Embroider, that is the question on: November 02, 2007 03:32:13 PM
This is my first post (YAY) and I am a total newbie when it comes to embroidery. I know how to cross stitch and hand sew and am fairly confident that I can pick it up if need be (especially using those amazing video tuts, thanks to whoever put in that hard work) but I'm not sure how best to do this. I'm making a cravat for the Criminologist in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. There is a link to a good detailed image below since apparently I can't embed it as a newb. I originally thought that it was all couched until I tried to find something that gave me that bulky look. Trying to couch rattail cord is a PAIN. So after a couple swirls I decided there had to be a better way. So, lovely ladies and possibly lads, what say you? What's the best way to reproduce this look. To be clear, I do know that there is a lot of beadwork here as well. I'm just talking about the swirls and outlines for the tassel jewel.
Thanks!
Asrah
