Pelican Cloak Commission

A few months back, a friend approached me with a commission project to embroider a pelican in piety badge for her peerage cloak.  The needle felted pelican on her cloak had started to deteriorate with age and she asked if I could make one to cover over it.  I agreed.

Red Linen Fabric
DMC Cotton Threads
Edging tape

I am very happy with how this turned out. She asked for the badge to be more personalized by adding the SCA Chiurgeon's badge as that is what she received her peerage for.   The image my inspiration came from was this:
I tried my best to create the feeling of how feathers would appear within the stitching and I am pleased with how it looks.
She received the cloak on Friday evening and is very happy with it.
