  1. I would like an indoor slipper. Since I cannot knit or do Berlin work embroidery will have to do. So, what do I do this design on? Linen or cross stitch fabric? Basically how do I get started?

  2. For embroidery, it seems linen will be the base fabric for an all over pattern. That is what I will be using. For some embroidery designs, cloth meaning wool is mentioned. You could also embroider quilted silk.

  3. Applique on quilted silk?

  4. I think I pinned it.
