Jenny Wren, the breast is yet to come!

I am slowly continuing to make progress on my little Jenny Wren Etui. After finishing her tail I moved on to her breast. The feathers are outlined in chain stitch and then filled with a variety of satin stitch, fly stitch and detached daisy stitch. The most worrying part of the stitching was using a stiletto to punch holes into the fabric – these were then bound with satin stitch. I think that it has turned out fairly well….


Next step – the wings…

Happy stitching!

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school.

    Thank you for sharing your progress on your etui. I saw the original when I did the brooch workshop with Jenny in February and I loved it. I am just a bit scared of doing it on my own without a workshop. Your blog is giving me so much more information about how it is made so might pick up the confidence to get the kit and go for it!
