Eastern Blue Bird

Today is day 29 of the 60 day bird challenge.  I choose to draw an eastern bluebird and recreate it in fabric and thread.  Here are some pictures that show my process.  I used Elmer’s glue stick to hold everything until I stitched.  The pieces of fabric were cut free hand and held up to the drawing to make sure the shape was right and then stuck to the canvas.  I did not use stabilizer behind my piece.

  1. Delores, you have achieved wonderful results with this technique. I tried something similar–freehand cutting, glue tacking, and threadpainting–on some pieces and loved working that way….The best to you on your 60 birds!! 🙂
