BULLFINCH RICHELIEU resembles some vintage decor, and this is no accident. This kind of embroidery appeared in the 16th century. Ladies from noble families practiced it, not simple girls. Among the aristocracy the embroidery was so popular, that sometimes even men allowed themselves to have such a “feminine” hobby. As they say, one of them was the famous French cardinal Richelieu. According to one version, due to this the cutwork embroidery got its name.

Richelieu always looks unusual and very beautiful. It’s absolutely clear that to create these motifs a person requires not just diligence and perseverance, but great skill. Really, a single wrong move of scissors, and you’ll have to start the work all over again. The product will be hopelessly flawed too. Patterns for embroidery machines in the Richelieu style from Royal Present Embroidery will become real helpers for a needlewoman. With them, the embroidery will take much less time, and the result will please with the high quality.

After the work with your embroidery machine is done, don’t hurry to take up the scissors. The picture will look better if you first iron the finished embroidery from the wrong side. Then make a tiny cut on the front side, and then from the inside cut out unnecessary material. The scissors should be tilted in the direction of the loopy seam. By the way, they must interlock tightly and be sharp. Do not neglect these little tricks as they will help you to create perfect Richelieu embroidery.
