Funky Bird Ditty Bag
CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
"Whimsical bird meets Quaker style", here is a new bird needlework project by Barbara Ana.
Like all her other imaginary birds, this one is stylised, with an extraordinary crest, long polka dot feathers, and an ornate body mixing Quaker and geometric motifs in a unique colour range. The bird is holding a rose in its beak. Surrounding the main motif are Quaker style letters.
The motif is an oblong shape, slightly rounder at the base. It can be adapted into a pouch as featured in the picture (instructions not included).
The piece is stitched on linen. The fabric in the picture was walnut stained after stitching to give it a vintage feel.
