Description
Raised Embroidery
** LEVEL 2 **

Mother Hen & Periwinkle is an ideal project if you are comfortable with general embroidery stitches and have a little experience with Raised Embroidery.

This gentle Mother Hen is resting with her brood of four tiny chickens in a bed of cheerful, flowering periwinkle.

Mother Hen & Periwinkle is embroidered onto light olive green print cotton fabric with stranded silk threads, using mostly common embroidery stitches and simple raised embroidery techniques. Layers of felt are used to create the hen’s plump body and her head and wing are embroidered separately before being attached to the main embroidery. The detached periwinkle flowers are stitched in place with a seed beads at the centers and the two buds are stitched with needle-woven picots. Detached leaves with wired edges complete the periwinkle vine

The detailed instructions and diagrams will help guide you step by step through the project.

I hope you will get as much pleasure embroidering your Mother Hen & Periwinkle as I did.

Happy Stitching, Anna
