Project Description:

Measuring 360 x 200 mm, Owlfred is an unconventional take on a common bird of prey inspired by a painting of an owl made of metal spare parts and a clock face tummy seen in an art gallery window. Using space-dyed Chameleon threads, DMC cottons and metallics, Miyuki beads and Czechoslovakian flat back crystals, this project uses a huge variety of stitches as under:

Bead embroidery: 4 techniques
Crewel embroidery: 29 stitches
Needle Lace embroidery: 3 techniques
Needle Weaving: 5 patterns

It is a large but interesting and fun project that will keep you busy for a while.
Suitable for experienced embroiderers.
