Puzzle piece #7

This embroidered bird is also from Judy Jeroy's Creative Crewel Embroidery book. It uses a number of diferent stitches: feather, chain, satin and stem. Also added a tatted motif and a woven delica bead rose and Czech glass leaves.


  1. That's a very pretty one. I like the use of all the different elements.

    How did you transfer the bird design to the fabric?

  2. The old fashion way via carbon paper. Had to dig out some from old office supplies. Who uses carbon paper anymore.

  3. Sometimes the old fashioned ways are the best. After all, hand embroidery is pretty old-fashioned in itself.

    Thanks for the tip.
