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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Some experience in surface embroidery is recommended SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The embroidered panel measures 15cm x 20cm wide (6" x 8").
