Wing Needle Flourish

If you do not have a wing needle or are afraid to use one then use a size 18 jeans needle. The effect will not be as obvious but still very pretty.


The design above is created sewing the design 4 times into blocks, then sewing the 4 blocks together. Finished sizes are 8 inches, 10 inches, and 12 inches. I created it to add to the back of my Wing Needle Madness vest.

You will need a size 120 Wing Needle, Size 12 Topstitch needle, tear away stabilizer, 40 weight machine embroidery threads, super fine bobbin thread, and woven fabric - I used a linen cotton blend fabric.

I love wing needle (WN) designs. We can’t see how beautiful they are until after it is sewn. Keep this in mind when looking at Hardanger and WN designs in software because no software can imitate the finished design, at least not that I’m aware.

A wing needle (WN) emulates pulled thread embroidery, a hand embroidery technique where the threads within the weave of the fabric are pulled over to the side and kept in place with hand stitches. A wing needle does the same thing. The wings on either side of the needle separate the threads within the weave of the fabric and the stitches hold it in place. It gives the appearance of “holes” in the fabric. But it is not holes at all.

Included are the 3 sizes – 4x4, 5x5, and 6x6. I chose to sew 4 of the designs and sew them together into a larger design. I sewed mine in all one color that matches the fabric.

An outline of the overall design is included to aid you in cutting out the blocks and sewing them together. If you are sewing these onto a project that does not require the outline then don’t sew the last color change.
