Special Request of the Week

Embroidery Library is always inspired by your design suggestions, and we thank you for sending us your terrific ideas, which we regularly incorporate into the weekly design themes. This space is dedicated to the "Request of the Week."

Embroiderers everywhere love the Audubon-inspired designs, and have requested many more birds in this style. So this week's special request is the Northern Hawk Owl, a hawk-like owl that ranges the cold boreal forests across Canada and Alaska. Smaller than a crow, this owl does much of its hunting by day. This design, with its realistic depiction, will look beautiful by night or day perched on a pillow sham, a wall hanging, and in a frame!
 
Available in four sizes:
8.60" x 10.61" and 6.90" x 8.52" and 5.85" x 7.23" and 4.85" x 5.99"
