Barbara's peacock - final part

Hi everyone.I’m back!Today, I would like to show you the final part of my peacock embroidery.Before that, to all of you, peacock lovers, there’s an article on peacocks and embroidered peacocks on CQ mag online.Please click here for more details.Oooh, I just love the gorgeous peacock feather wedding gown!For tonnes of ideas to embroider peacocks, please click here.

For the tail, I’d decided to embroider the ‘eyes’ first.This was done in satin stitch with 2 strands of silk thread.

Then, I embellished each ‘eye’ with a sequin.The rest of the feathers were fly stitched, also with silk thread.

This is the completed peacock tail.Want to see how the peacock looks like?You’ll have to wait for a while.Till then, have a wonderful day and happy stitching!
