** LEVEL 2 **
The Partridge in a Pear ornament is a good project if you are comfortable with general embroidery stitches and a little experience with Raised Embroidery.
This Partridge in a Pear ornament is a smaller version of my ‘First Day’ published in issue of 67 of Inspirations magazine. I think most of us associate the Partridge in a Pear Tree with the festive season, but this little pear shaped ornament is pretty enough to leave hanging around all year.
Partridge in a Pear is embroidered with stranded silk threads onto a ground of pale blue-grey silk fabric. The body of the partridge is embroidered as a separate piece, or slip, before being stitched in place over layers of felt padding. The slightly raised wing is created as a piece of needle-lace, then stitched in place over the top. The plump pear, ripe for the picking is also padded with felt and a simple wired leaf creates the final touch on this small piece of raised embroidery.
The detailed instructions and diagrams will help guide you step by step through the project.
