A while ago I took part in a blog-world link up adventure. To cut a long story short, a handful of lovely bloggers shared tutorials for an array of flowery items.
My contribution was a scandi style embroidery pattern that I sewed onto a cushion but which I had designed to be easily adapted for a whole plethora of scandi-fied projects.
In keeping with the floral theme, I provided the patterns for the flower designs.
There were, however, a pair of little scandi style birds that snuck their way onto my cushion and which turned out to be a surprise hit.
And now, after a frankly inexcusable delay, I am proud to share the pattern for these little guys.
You’ll notice that the pattern doesn’t direct you on how to fill the wings in. You could simply choose to sew the outlines in backstitch, as the pattern suggests.
I chose to fill the wings with satin stitch and you’re more than welcome to do the same. Or how about a bit of applique to add a twist to the design?
However you sew these little guys, I hope that you like them as much as I do and that you manage to find a place for them in your hearts and your homes.
