Fine White Work Song Bird

Fine White Work Song Bird

$42.61 USD

The Fine White Work Songbird is an advanced design.

The beautiful fine embroidery is created by stitching three layers of fabric (two layers of shadow linen with a layer of net sandwiched in-between) are sewn together with surface embroidery stitches. When all the embroidery has been worked layers of linen are cut away from the back or the front of the work.

This will leave some areas with two layers of fabric, some with one layer of fabric and some with just net creating a dimensional look to the embroidery. On the single layer of fabric pulled-work stitches are worked, in the net areas net stitches are worked.

The instruction booklet that comes in the kit has lots of diagrams and detailed instructions to guide you through the embroidery. The instructions are written with the beginner in mind and intended to guide embroiderers of any level through the embroidery from beginning to end. The fabric comes with the design hand drawn on so there are no worries about transferring the design.

The embroidery can be mounted on a coloured background which shows up the density of the fabric layers and the white embroidery threads.

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 Jacobean Tree with Bird is an advanced crewel surface embroidery technique. If you are new to the technique you may want to try a smaller design first as this design is large and will take some time to stitch.

The design uses traditional Jacobean motifs and is stitched in 14 traditional Jacobean colours in Appleton crewel wool on traditional linen twill fabric. The design comes drawn on the fabric so you do not have to be concerned about transferring the design yourself.

There are 22 surface embroidery stitches worked on in a single strand of the crewel wool for each stitch on the design.

Needle Painting Chickadee on Blossom Branch

$11.62$44.93 USD

The Chickadee on Blossom Branch is worked in needle painting also known as thread painting and long and short stitch. This is the most realistic form of surface embroidery which is worked in staggered straight stitches in a single strand of embroidery thread on a closely woven fabric, blending rows of colour to create a very realistic embroidery. The sheen of the threads adds to the soft and life like appearance of the bird.

The cheaper option is to purchase an extra piece of fabric with the Chickadee design to practice the stitches. 

The Chickadee is an advanced design, please visit the Needle Painting Information page for more information on needle painting and rating of the designs from easy to hard.

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.

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.

The Blackwork Silhouette Designs – Owls and Rabbit are beginners blackwork designs worked in Waterlilies silk threads on 28 count Lugana fabric and each design fits nicely in a 5 inch embroidery hoop and can be framed in the hoop.

The designs are worked directly from a set chart rather that in the tissue paper transfer method that my blackwork art embroideries are worked.

Accompanying the chart is a detailed instruction booklet which has step-by-step numbered diagrams and instructions to guide you through the embroidery.
