I've only done 2 wall hangings using broderie perse. I almost never see it done by anyone today. Here's my combination of watercolor piecing (for the background) and broderie perse. It's a little heart wallhanging:
I wish I had a close up photo because I did a lot of beading in the center flowers that you can't see. Just in the last few days, I've seen people talking about broderie perse on Blogger. I kind of wish it would make a comeback. I have several fabric pieces that would really lend themselves to doing some broderie perse with a more contemporary print.
Are any of you guys doing broderie perse? I'd love to know if there's a group or just know if you are working on something using this technique. Would you let me know if you are? It's freezing here (11 degrees) so I'm stuck at home for fear of falling on the ice we have. I saw on the news that our weather went to the northeast. Hope everyone stays warm and safe!
