Primitive Embroidery - Mounted on a Vintage Piano Scroll

Hi, Everyone,

What's a girl to do when she has lots of Vintage Piano Scrolls?  Well . . . create Art out of them, of course!

Below is the rolled out Piano Scroll revealing the Primitive hand embroidery.

I started out my fabric collage with a base of light weight polka-dot denim cut into 6 pieces for ease of sewing.  Then I cut white batten burg lace and 3 batik cotton fabrics into various sizes and laid them out flowing into one another.

I cut up a crochet doily and added them to the collage as well.  The Embroidered Art was hand stitched on while the remaining pieces were machine stitched on to the denim polka-dot base.

A white/blue cotton fabric was sewn onto the Vintage Piano Scroll to give it strength.
The polka-dot bases were then machine sewed onto the Piano Scroll below.

When it was all completed I was very happy with the results.

It is proudly displayed on a bookshelf tied with a bow, for me to enjoy anytime.

This project was fun to hand embroider and easy to sew on the machine.
I am very pleased how it turned out.

Art takes many forms.
Fabric and paper work well together . . . mount it on a Vintage Piano Scroll and it is a beautiful piece of Art.

Have fun creating!


  1. totally awesome! Great piece that you can tell was done with lots of love and attention to detail. I've never seen one of these before and it's just gorgeous!
