The Blackwork Chickadee design is an advanced design in my blackwork art embroidery kits. The Chickadee is a counted form of hand embroidery in which interesting blackwork patterns are worked on the bird. Dimension is achieved by changing the thickness of the embroidery thread and the density of the pattern, creating a realistic design.

Once you receive the kit you will transfer the outline of the design onto the counted fabric in the tissue paper transfer method by tracing the outline onto a piece of tissue paper, pinning the tissue paper to the fabric and then working a basting stitch (tacked line) along all the design lines. The tissue paper is ripped away leaving tacked design lines on the fabric and then you work the blackwork patterns with-in the tacked design lines. The tacking is removed once the embroidery is complete.

This is a much more fun and easier method than working the pattern directly from a set chart as there is more versatility where each pattern can be worked so is less complicated to work. Each blackwork chickadee embroidery will come out slightly different making the chickadee unique to you and you will have a piece of stitched art that you you will be proud of.

In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 24 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on how to work the tacking and the blackwork patterns on the chickadee.

If you want a more in-depth learning of the blackwork technique you may be interested in the Blackwork Lovebirds “Just the Two of Us” design which has 5 PDF files with work-in-progress pictures of how I stitched the embroidery to guide you through the embroidery.

The chickadee is not intended to be worked on 14 or 16 count Aida, so you should be able to count on 32 count fabric. A stitching light and magnification are an asset to work the embroidery. If you are not sure if the technique is for you, you could try the Introductory to Blackwork -Small Blackwork Butterfly first which is quicker and easier to work.

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.
