Shark's teeth

As part of the embroidery course I'm doing (C&G Innovative Hand Embroidery), my latest piece of homework was to create examples of edgings.  This is my favourite: it's called Shark's Teeth, although i think the repeating rows are more mountainlike.

Other edgings are (from left) some home-made bias binding, a different type of Shark's Teeth, and cording.  They were all surprisingly easy, although (my ongoing gripe with this course syllabus) I wouldn't call them innovative.   On the plus side, it does mean the spare room fabric mountain is v.slightly smaller now.

  1. I'm with you- really lovely, but not innovative unless you view anything that isn't a straight edging as totally crazy. But good practice and nice to see
