A work in progress.

A banner made upon request from an extant rug and caligraphy with embroidery texture added digitally.

The signature of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent.
I started out with a black and white drawing, and digitally applied texture to mimic embroidery.
Detail shown in inset.

Mamluk textile 15th Century with restored piece inset. Repeats seamlessly.

Below is a very different project. At top is pictured a piece of new trim from Calontir Trim. Beneath that, I have reconfigured various elements in a circle so I might construct a pillbox type cap from the two.
