Natural dyes and silk velvet have an affinity for each other, like a love poem whispered into a breeze, like feather soft caresses, cool water on hot naked skin, sensual and earthy, sharing the privacy of deep emotion and quiet solitude.
Pure silk velvet is a dream to turn into art, or functional but stunning accessories. For embroidery on this, i would advise backing with a soft but firmly woven cotton (cotton flannel is excellent!), and use bold embroidery stitches, like chain, whipped backstitch or whipped running stitch, in 6 strand floss or #3, #5 or *8 perle. If you are doing satin or other covering stitches, a small piece of stabilizer is recommended. Beading is wonderful as well!!!!!
