This is cross stitch pattern of an iconic native New Zealand bird, the Kiwi. Tired of endless wintery themed Christmas decorations, I decided to design some patterns that have the Southern Hemisphere in mind. The Kiwi is a nocturnal flightless bird, with fine brown feathers, the Maori people believe that the Kiwi are under the special protection of Tane Mahuta, god of the forest.
The finished design measures 9 cm x 7.5 cm, when stitched on 14ct Aida. This design uses mocha beige, christmas red, tangerine, black and white DMC thread on coloured Aida (you can use any colour you prefer, I have used forest green in these pictures).
