Scarf

Description
A white on white embroidered cotton scarf, possibly for a dresser or chest. The design was stamped on the fabric with two embroidery printing blocks. The design is from Godey’s Lady’s Book June 1861, p. 522. The stitches used are eyelet, satin, and stem. The eyelet stitches require first a hole to be made in the fabric and then satin stitches completely covering the edge of the opening.
