Broderie Anglaise Bed Valance

This was a project for a friend who had seen one and wanted one.  I had to get all the material on line.  Once constructed there was 12 meters in length with 2 rows of trim, to be gathered into half the length.  I didn’t fancy gathering 12 meters in one go, so worked in 2 metre lengths.  Under the advice of my sewing tutor from MakeWith (, I used waxed dental floss attached with a zig zag stitch to do the gathering.  This worked really well.
