Vandyke Stitched Beak

 Stitch #28 on Sharon's Take A Stitch Tuesday was the Vandyke stitch.  This was a completely new stitch for me and I'm very glad that my TAST owl finally has a beak!
 I cut some holes in this resist dyed felted piece for an exercise in what if and why not.  I buttonhole stitched around the holes and added running stitches and beads and cross stitches.  I then tacked down at the back different colours of organza to fill the holes. Hubby named it Flight Among the Planets.  I certainly enjoyed stitching on felt as it's wonderful and easy to work with.
Have a wonderful and fine, fine day everyone and thank you so much for dropping by,
Jeannette

  11. Cutting holes in things would scare me so I definitely admire what you did with this. Your DH gave it a perfect name too. Perfect use for the Van Dyke stitch for an owl beak.
