Mother Hen & Periwinkle

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

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 centres 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.
