Embroidery Trends: Birds

In my opinion, birds never go out of style.  There are so many varieties, interpretations, styles…..the possibilities are endless when it comes to birds in art.  My main craft is embroidery so I am going to be doing a post every week on different trends, styles, and just plain cool things going on with embroidery.

3 birds hand embroidery vintage hoop

I love the unexpected pops of color that the birds bring and who doesn’t love vintage fabric?!?  This great piece was crafted by jbdesign.  You can also check out her fantabulous blog at jbrowndesign.blogspot.com.

Little City Hoop--Wee Owl

An adorable piece of art by LittlePinkHouse!  The combination of felt and stitches is magical.  It makes you rethink what can go on a hoop!  You can also check out her great blog checkoutgirlcrafts.blogspot.com!

Sewn bird fly home embroidery

Finally, here we have a piece by laurabailliedesigns2 that I am IN LOVE with.  Ok, so the detail is awesome and I love the colors.  But what I really really like love is that she used a little bit of lace detailing on the belly of the bird.  It just adds another dimension that is so perfect.  It’s great seeing the use of scraps of crafty materials going towards something different and exciting!  Check out her blog at laurabailliedesigns.blogspot.com for more from her!

Check back next week for more embroidery work featured.  What kinds of trends and things would you like to see featured?
