Shadow Work : The Bunny Project

I have started a new Shadow embroidery project. I wish to share with you all my work progress .

You are welcome to join me if you want to stitch along .

Shadow Work : The Bunny Project

I am going to post a step by step pictorial presentation of a Shadow work project on this blog for few days / weeks ( as and when I finish the work) from now.

It will be a very good tutorial to understand in detail about shadow embroidery, how to modify it in various areas of design and how to work the overlapping designs in shadow embroidery

This particular design will use two types of shadow embroidery :   Reverse Herring bone and  Darning on reverse side.

Here is the design that I am going to work on .

Materials required and the Basics of Shadow embroidery have been already discussed here 

you can use single strand of the 6- strand DMC thread. I have used 2 strands as the original bunny project is being stitched on a very loosely woven fabric.

Dimensions of the design :

I am using the above mentioned dimensions for this project and I found it difficult to work on a larger bunny may be because the stitches would not remain as tight as I need them to be.

The fabric should be drum-tight on the hoop for a good finish.

Stay tuned for upcoming posts for interesting details of this project.


  1. I would LOVE to join in! Is the bunny pattern available?

    1. The picture is from a magazine so I would not be able to post it here. You can as well copy it , as it doesn't seem to be a complex one. I have mentioned the dimensions too. For any query regarding the work, feel free to contact me.
