Hardangish is my term I coined for my Hardanger Machine Embroidery because, let’s face it, no machine can truly duplicate handmade Hardanger embroidery. But I try. As a consequence, I’ll sometimes use the terms interchangeably when talking about my machine embroidery interpretation of this fabric art style.
These designs require fabric and water soluble stabilizer.
Some of my Hardanger designs are free-standing designs (not free standing lace). Rather, they’re of ornaments, bookmarks, etc. which can also can be applied to items impossible to hoop. In some instances, they can even be sewn together into larger projects…that really make a statement.
Hardanger and jeans are an unlikely combination. But I like embroidery on jeans. Regrettably, they’re too much trouble to hoop. However, free-standing designs make embellishing those favored jeans sooo easy. Slide the pants leg over the cuff feature of your sewing machine and stitch down the pre-fabricated design.
After the designs attached, you may turn the item inside out and cut away the fabric from behind the designs for a peek-a-boo method. The open, lacy parts show up so nicely this way.
In some cases, designs can be sewn in blocks, and stitched together to make larger, bolder projects, such as table covers, bedspreads and jackets. Oh, my.
Hardanger Rainbows was my first attempt at adding color sequences to a traditionally monochromatic fabric art form, thereby giving it more contemporary look.
Don’t miss out on showing off some Hardanger to your family and friends.

Laura’s favorite gold metallic thread. I purchased a large 5000 m cone almost 20 years ago and it is still strong with little if any breakage. Use a size 12 topstitch needle with this.

My angels to date are Hardanger and Smocked – lacy, wing needled, floral , and other varieties.
Smocked angels have smocked wings. They are gathered then embroidered in the hoop.
Instructions include how to make the body and head with a skirt to add the smocked wings too.
Hardanger angels most fit into greeting cards to send to that special person.
This small Hardanger Angel fits perfectly in cards and hanging on the tree.
Floral angels fit into greeting cards as well.
Other angels are embroidered in sections and the zigzagged together.
