Brazilian Embroidery and Dimensional Embroidery

These are some of the Brazilian embroidery which I did some days back..they all done with rayon threads.

As I have no plans to work on a particular project and rayon threads are expensive comparing to cone threads I thought to add more Brazilian stitches done with cone threads. They are called as dimensional embroidery.

To end this I draw a circle around them and did fly stitch. This is for my further reference about Brazilian embroidery

Final piece looks like this after removing and adding some more stitches..


  1. Hai Lakshmi,niece work.which thread you used for this embroidery?

    1. Naz Sal few flowers are done with Z-twist rayon threads and most of the flowers are done with cone threads..

  2. Z twist Rayon thread? are they imported??? I couldn't find them anywhere hence, I am working with cone threads

  3. I got few Ztwist rayon threads from friends..but most of the Brazilian stitches are done with cone threads..they are perfect substitutes for Ztwist rayon threads..
