Christmas Peacock

It is time to start making Christmas presents! The first one is for my Mom. She loves peacocks, so i thought I would design her a brooch.  I finished the sample today. Here are the parts.

   And here it is finally assembled. I ordered some beautifully hand dyed thread today on Etsy. I will post pictures when I receive it. I used sized 10 and 40 cotton thread for the sample but the final will be made with 20 and 50.


  1. Hello Anita! I love the peacock,the tail is amazing, what a great idea! I can't wait to see him finished.


  2. Thank You, Helen! It's been at least 10 years since I've done any Irish crochet,but I think it's slowly coming back:)


Thanks for your comment!
