The Bird of Paradise is an advanced surface embroidery technique.

The design is inspired by traditional Jacobean tree motifs but on a smaller scale and incorporates modern materials such as silk ground fabric, cotton threads, metallic thread, organza fabrics and kid leather.

There are 22 surface embroidery stitches worked on the Bird of Paradise design.

The silk fabric comes with the design drawn on so you do not have to be concerned about transferring the design yourself and the DMC cotton embroidery threads come on a numbered thread template so you know exactly which colour to use on the embroidery.

I have listed the DMC cotton embroidery thread colour that the fabric is closest to:

Antique Ivory: 3033

Cream: Ecru

Light Pistachio Green: 524

Fern Green: 523

You can check out the DMC colour chart for the colour of the fabrics. Please note that the colours on your computer screen may look slightly different to the true fabric colour.

In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with lots of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on how to work each stitch.

Each stitch is worked in a single strand of DMC embroidery giving the embroidery a lovely fine quality.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.

The Shadow Work Squirrel Fish is an intermediate surface embroidery technique.

The shadow work embroidery is made up of bands of herringbone stitch at the back of the fabric that show through at the front as a shadow of colour.

I have designed my shadow work embroideries as pieces of art. The squirrel fish looks lovely mounted between two window mat boards and hung from the corners like a mobile so that both sides of the embroidery can be seen and makes a great bathroom decoration.
