Modern Bird Pins

Hand dyed wool is marvelous for the pop of color it offers.  These modern birds with pins on the back showcase the wool and a variety of embroidery stitches.  Each one is unique.

The shape is a modern take on a scandinavian bird motif.  The color is hand appliqued on top of black felted wool.  Running stitch, stem stitch, french knots and an open buttonhole stitch fill the body with bold black lines.

Taking these to Mighty Tieton Craft and Antiques Holiday Bazaar next weekend.  Still lots to do before then.
