Embroidery on Rayon Velvet

If you love the feel of fabrics and fabric crafts, rayon velvet is right up there at the lap of luxury. It has the most wonderful feel, and is not stiff like velveteen.

Many people would not expect that embroidery would work on rayon velvet, but I have seen and made a few extraordinary pieces. Rayon velvet crafts work best for large items like tablecloths or lap robes.

It takes a large needle and twine or candlewicking thread to make the stitches show up well, but it works quickly and is a unique kind of needlework crafts. You can make a large design really stand out, and it works with unusual stitches, too. Stitches that are mostly top surface work best.
