Stitched, sewn and embellished, my wise owl is all done.
I decided to sew little beads onto his belly, scarf and wing for a little extra ‘bling’ and even a line of beads down the side of the pocket itself to change the shape of the outline to fit better.
A top tip for anyone working on a similar project: use the stitching on the back of the canvas from the cross stitch design to hem the material. It’s secure and neat, and will allow for hemming while avoiding any unsightly stitching showing on the front of the design.
All he’s missing is a name.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
