Elizabethan Scrolls by Phillipa Turnbull
This design is based on an original antique petticoat edge from Phillipa’s antique crewel work collection. The design was originally used as popular pattern for silk embroidered Elizabethan coifs, but 100 years later was used in this larger scale for the creation of a pelmet in a set of bed hangings.
Using the original design as a template, Phillipa uses a wide range of crewel work stitches, colours and techniques. The scale of this design is much larger than the scale of the Elizabethan stitched coifs, and therefore an ideal introduction to Elizabethan designs.
