French Knotted Bunny Stitched Pillow
My picture today is a rabbit done on linen fabric. Target stores always have these great pillows with stitching they are 25.00 a bit too much for me since I like to change out so much that I decided to give it a go. I found a great Spring bunny traced her onto the material then french knotted with a deep tan thread. I used 3 strands of embroidery thread to make sure that it stood out clearly on the linen fabric. The backing is some tea dyed ticking cotton material and quickly sewn and stuffed now have the perfect gift for a dear friend. I am planning on trying the next one on some burlap material which I know will go great on the patio furniture. I can see flowers, birds and clay pots designed on the burlap then french knotted.
Its been a great weekend hope it was for all of you that are reading.
