Now that I have all the elements of the Etui completed I can start to put my little Wren together.
As part of the kit you are sent a preformed bird shape with bronze beak and legs. Onto this 3d shape you stick the embroidered tale and then the whole bird is covered in felt. A little thimble liner is sewn together and stuck into a preformed hole (this is being held in place by my pink thimble!).
All the elements are then pinned and sewn onto the birds body. I really enjoyed this part as the little Wren began to develop a character of it’s own!
Finally the wings were secured to the body and the bronze legs stuck in place. Et voila, here is the finished little Wren. I am not sure (now it is complete) that it is a Jenny Wren, I rather fancy my Wren is more of a Lenny!
I would recommend this little kit by Jenny Adin-Christie to anyone, it has been challenging in places but great fun to stitch, with so many different techniques covered.
Now all I need to complete is the mossy hillock that the little Wren will stand on.
Happy stitching everyone!
