Tulipa Tulipa Bird by Anna Scott

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Some experience in surface embroidery is recommended

Pattern Description:

The design for this panel, was inspired by an old Hungarian platter decorated with a fabulous bird surrounded by a floral wreath. I loved the bird and the fanciful flowers which I thought would be perfect for crewel embroidery.

The embroidery is worked in bright cheerful colours using a variety of my favourite crewelwork stitches to create texture.
I used Cascade House shaded crewel wool - conversion to Appleton is included.

Full size embroidery design.

Easy to follow step-by-step instructions.

Clear diagrams and photographs.
