The special thing about this hippie chicken is the fine outline drawn in one go. Through discreetly placed color details, this embroidery file is perfectly suited to find its place on light fabrics and to process quickly. Please pay attention to the choice of your fabric color, because on too dark chosen fabrics the hen does not come across so effectively.
You can find more sizes of this design on elfenidee.com.
If you would like to embroider this design on towelling, you will find a separate file in the folder for this purpose. Since the fine contour lines would sink into a high pile fabric, a separate file with a backing grid is included specifically for this purpose. I recommend to embroider this grid (1st embroidery step in the corresponding file) exactly in the color of the fabric – also the bobbin thread in fabric color! This way you will get a beautiful embroidery result without the details sinking into the fabric.
This lovely chicken was created from a watercolor painting by dear Sabine Weuthen of Smart-Thread.com. With the kind permission of Sabine I was allowed to process the painting into an embroidery motif and offer it here.
