Cloud Filling owl

I finished my cloud filling sampler, but this time I didn’t make different samples. I used the filling for Spinjenny’s owl. I wanted to use this pattern for a long time and this was the perfect stitch! The outlines are whipped backstitches with 2 threads of stranded DMC. I also used it for the grids of the fillings, but I made a different grid for each part of the pattern. For the lacing of the owl and the branch I used perle 5, the other lacing is done with 2 threads of stranded DMC. I made 3 detached chain stitches in black perle 5 for each claw. For the beak I used a padded satin stitch with 2 threads of stranded DMC. This picture is only a part of my sampler. You can see my complete sampler at my Flickr-page.This stitch is part of the Take A Stitch Tuesday challenge at Pintangle.

  1. Hoi Annet, mooi dat je deze steek ook echt als vulsteek hebt gebruikt, daar is ie heel geschikt voor.
