 Chicken Work

Chicken Work is almost similar to Shadow work. Like Shadow work, Closed Herring Bone stitches are done on the wrong side of the fabric but the stitches are not done as perfectly as in Shadow work.

In chicken Work, stitching is always done with white cotton rough thread and the fabrics used is thicker than those used for Shadow Work - usually cotton. Though both follow the same stitch they have a totally different appearance. (For Herring Bone stitches refer Shadow work.)

Materials Required 

  • Embroidery frame

  • White cotton thread

  • Tracing Paper

  • Carbon Paper

  • Scissors

  • Needle
