Thread-u-cation Thursday- Little Bird Make Over
Remember this fellow from a new series I'm working on called Little Bird on the Prairie? He is created from my stash of pre-fused fabric scraps and lives in a 12" x 12" square. Through the miracle of hand embroidery he is now transformed! (Sort of a fowl make-over.)
You'll find his new plumage incorporates several stitches already included in Thread-u-cation Thursdays. From head to tail there is the outline stitch, French knots, and fern stitch. His little legs and the fence posts are straight stitches and the flowers are surrounded by the blanket stitch.
I love how simple hand stitches transform a plain little bird to a fancy bird. Try it today and discover the power of the stitch!
