Bird Needle Painting Embroideries

”When I saw the pictures of needle painting on Tanja’s website, I thought I needed to do the same but in a special way

I am a quilter also and I love embroidery, therefore I asked Tanja to transfer the drawings of four birds on my own fabric.  I was thrilled she accepted to do it.

I really enjoyed each minute doing them. I am quite pleased with the results.”

Baby Burrowing Owl Needle Painting Embroidery

“This was the first needle painting I have done and I was attracted to this idea as I love animals.

The instructions however were REALLY clear and detailed and I had no problem doing it- using the PDF from the book to help.

I was also really pleased with the detailed and prompt feedback I got which will make sure my next project is even better.

The project arrived really quickly and communication was excellent. I will definitely buy from Tanja in future.”

Baby Burrowing Owl stitched by Ekaterina Ozerova in New Jersey, USA

Ekaterina worked the Baby Burrowing Owl from the A-Z of Thread Painting Book. She personalized her embroidery by changing the grass and adding dandelions which bring out the colour in the owls eyes.

Adding flowers to bird and animal embroideries is a great idea.

I design most of my embroideries to be taught over two days which means that regretfully I have to miss out flowers from some designs as there is not enough time to teach the animal and flowers in two days.

Please feel free to adapt any of my needle painting designs to suit your taste as Ekaterina did, Tanja.

Stitched by Mary Doerder in Iowa, USA

Red Poll Kit

Red Poll Needle Painting Embroidery

“When I purchased the kit for this Red Poll birdie I also purchased a second printed fabric for me to stitch and give away as a gift.

When I finished this one shown here I asked Tanja for comments.  She provided several, one being she would have the white line in the eye (glint) just minutely shorter as it looks more like a line than a glint and gives the bird a bit of a sly look. A slightly shorter line will soften the expression of the bird. If it is too short and does not show up, just add another stitch on top.

My plan is to incorporate her comments into my second worked piece and then decide which eye glint I like best.

Also Tanja instructions were clear and her provided photo of the stitched Red Poll was extremely helpful in my deciding thread placement.”
