I just added a photo of an example of the Madeira applique I've
been trying to figure out how to do. In the picture you can see both
sides, and there is another applique on the wrong side of the hankie
that is identical to the one on the front.

If not for the hand embroidery stitches showing on the wrong side,
the hankie would be reversible (as far as the applique goes). Now,
how on earth did someone do this?

The other hankie pictured is just one I think very pretty. It's the
finest handwork with the tiniest stitches I've ever seen. Wish I
knew what to call this kind of embroidery.

Here's a link to my flicker album...these are the first two pictures.

Thank you Kathy. I wish I'd been more faithful taking pictures of things I make.
This is an old album I rarely use, but wanted to post a picture (still can figure out how
to post them here!) of an example of a madeira applique technique I've been trying
to figure out.

The off white hankie with corner turned up (one I had, but did not make) shows the
applique on the front, and another one exactly the same applied to the back too.
(two, separate appliques applied at the same time). I'd love to know how this was done.

The more contemporary pieces of Madeira applique, that I've seen anyway, only have
the applique applied to the front. Not even sure why they ever used two of them to
applique in one place, other than the back of the piece looks just as pretty as the front.
