Bird Sampler

from Shiny Happy World
(10) Name: 'Embroidery : Bird Sampler
Bird Sampler

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic embroidery stitches - nothing too fancy

Pattern Description:

I like samplers because you can easily pull out individual elements to stitch on all kinds of different projects. Stitch a single bird on the corner of a tea towel. Blow your favorite up big and stitch it on a T-shirt. Add one to the pocket of an apron. Stitch one on a spring hat. Choose a few favorites and frame them in small embroidery hoops to make a collection on your wall. The possibilities are endless!

You'll receive a full-sized pattern - regular, and reversed for easy use with iron-on transfer tools. You'll also get a complete color and stitch guide, and (like all my patterns) the pattern has links to videos teaching you all the stitches used.

Each bird can take anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple of hours to complete. To do the whole sampler will take several evenings.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • entire grouping is roughly 7 inches square


  • fabric, embroidery thread, needle
