How to embroider a parrot in needle painting
Here you will find the necessary pictures and instructions to help you in completing the “Parrot” design
It is the same instructions you will find accompanying the printed linen that you can buy as usual from here in our online shop or in our Etsy shop. The explanations also contain a colored and enlarged drawing indicating precisely the placement of the various colors to help you embroider the bird. The color pictures displayed in this post are supposed to give you a clear view of the way we have embroidered this design.
The color list is included in the kit and is also available on our website.
We used 11 different stitches to complete this design
Stem stitch, French knot, split back stitch, fishbone stitch, straight stitch, satin stitch, long and short stitch, trellis stitch
Don’t forget that each surface embroidered with satin stitch or long and short stitch must be first encircled with a split back stitch 1 thread!
The parrot is fully embroidered with long and short stitch and each part (feathers, head, beak) has been previously surrounded with a split back stitch. All the embroidery is done with a single thread.
I began by embroidering the feathers of the tail.
