Crow Three


While I had the batik fabric out, I cut the size piece I would need for the last crow in the same size as the others. I thread sketched the last crow which I'm not in love with. I think I need to add a few tiny hand stitches around the beak. Also color will bring him to life.


Here's the P.S.
The more I looked at this, the more unhappy I became. I started to unpick the beak, then I noticed the tail, then I said, What the heck. I found a similar batik fabric I had made on the same day a few years ago and completely re-stitched the entire bird.


See the difference in the head/beak front edge of wing and tail? MUCH better now.

  1. They're both amazing, but yes, I see where the second one is a better result. I'm amazed at how you can do that, do you trace on the back and stitch from there?
    Can't wait to see the color added!

  2. It's fascinating... the differences are quite subtle but overall the second crow is much better. Good job spotting the problem areas. I would have been looking at it forever with no clue.
