I'm working on some samples for an upcoming workshop - same technique - different project. I've always loved to do bobbinwork and usually do a sampler when I teach the workshop. However, this time around, I thought having a small wallhanging to bring home might be fun. I applied the same techniques to 2 different projects - a butterfly and a parrot (a very handsome parrot named Herbie). To do bobbinwork, you need to use a heavier thread in the bobbin - one that doesn't work on top as it won't fit through the needle - any needle of any size.
