Finished size 30.5cm/12” square to suit a 10” square frame
A little bird sits in a wreath filled with all things Christmas.
This redwork design is given extra depth and texture with the addition of dimensional holly leaves created with semi-detached applique. Peepers and a simple border complete this small Christmas project.
