Fine White Work Song Bird Kit

Fine White Work Song Bird Kit

$43.29 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 Cross-Stitch Meets Blackwork Designs are great transition designs for those new to blackwork and who have previously done cross-stitch, although no experience of cross-stitch or counted thread is necessary.

The Hummingbird Haven is worked from a chart and has a detailed instruction booklet which has step-by-step numbered diagrams and instructions to guide you through the blackwork patterns. The embroidery can be worked in colour if you do not like black.
