Mrs Sew & So Red Jacobean Bird Needlework Design

A beautiful floral design suitable for cushions, bag, stool or other needlework project. Inspired by Jacobean embroidery motifs, very fresh and contemporary. Stitched in stranded cotton in the Mrs Sew & So red colours but can be done very effectively in blues, neutral taupes and cream or other colours. Our cushion is 42 x 58cm, the pattern can be enlarged to suit your project.

You trace the design onto the fabric,  stitches are shown with instructions  included. You match the colours to the picture, but the combination of reds is very flexible.

The complete kit includes:

  • The pattern,
  • The fabric: an ivory linen/cotton blend, (140cm wide x .5m) sufficient for a fairly large project including the backing,
  • 9 skeins of DMC Stranded Thread, 
  • Embroidery needles to suit.

The work is not difficult, it is suited to someone with medium needlework skills.
