An owl color of night
I chose to embroider this three-dimensional owl on blue linen. It measures 12 cm but of course, you can adapt the size for your intended usage … hang it on your scissors, a key or even fill it with lavender to perfume your clothes!
You will find in this first part the explanations necessary for the realization of the front and the back of this project.
In the second part, I will publish the explanations concerning the wing for which I used the technique of “stumpwork” and those necessary for the assembly.
