Filet embroidery involves weaving a pattern over a netlike base. The result is lacy — a kind of retro-technology pixel art. If you’d like to give it a try, there’s an excellent tutorial on Elinor’s Website. See the tute.

And many thanks to Racaire of Racaire’s Embroidery & Needlework for sharing this link.

    I have recently taken a class where we did withdrawn thread and created our own “mesh” to do the weaving on. If you are interested in some photos, please contact me and I will share them.
