feather embroidery


My lovely hens left me a lot of beautiful feathers during molt (chicken and other birds partially loose their feathers once a year to regrow new ones, like we loose and regrow hair all the time).

I collected the most beautiful to me, because keeping them all would have been too much. I always imagined an embroidery piece with these and thought this portrait I’m doing is just the right piece for this.


If you have lots of feathers, too, and want to embroider with them keep in mind, you will not be able to use the hoop stitching them on – at least not where the feathers cross the hoops circles!




  1. The details are delicious–looking forward to seeing the whole piece.
