Black Jack Tray Cloth Kit
View
If you live in South Africa and have walked through grass it is very likely that you have had to remove ‘Black Jack’ seeds from your clothing. While in the garden Vyv came across a well-developed specimen of this weed which should have been removed ages ago. She picked stems of flowers, buds, leaves and seeds and photographed them and then used this as reference material to draw a black jack design for embroidering on a white tray cloth. It is a botanical style design with interesting shaped seeds to embroider.
