The Forbidden Stitch in Chinese Embroideries - Also known as Knot Stitch, Chinese Knot, Peking Knot, French Knot, Ring Embroidery, or Forbidden Stitch These terms all consistently refer to small knots made on the fabric surface by wrapping a heavy embroidery thread, usually silk floss, around a needle and then stitching it down. This has been done with varying numbers of wrappings and degrees of complexity.
Create gorgeous "wrapped canvas" wall art by repurposing a thrifted picture frame and stapling vintage linens or bed sheets to the frame. Add embroidery here and there to add dimension, texture, and color. Fantastic, inexpensive upcycling project from #SadieSeasongoods
