Evonne & Kevin's embroidered heirloom is based on their elegant wedding invitation, which featured bold lettering along with a few calligraphic flourishes on a subtle pink ground. The piece focuses on the most important elements from their invitation–their names and wedding date.
The embroidery was done using silk and wool thread on a light pink Irish linen. Stitches used were: running stitch, stem stitch, and satin stitch. The finished piece was laced around an acid-free board, matted, and then fit into a white frame measuring 9" h x 12" w.
