Birds of Paradise embroidery pattern
Say hello to Louie, D'BELA's sun conure (parrot). They enjoy his bright colors and playful antics. He loves being outdoors a part of every day. Many thanks to Rosalie for creating the interlocked stem stitch and giving permission to teach the stitch in this design. The interlocked stem stitch is used in the oval border. Another similar but very different stitch is the raised stem stitch used in the branch.
Stitches included in this design are bullion, buttonhole, cast-on, chain, outline, raised stem stitch, interlocked stem stitch, satin, short and long, straight.
This is an intermediate/advance design
Designed for Brazilian embroidery and Edmar rayon threads, but could easily be stitched with your choice of fibres and techniques.
