Bird and Vine Embroider

I saw this pattern from Gennine.

Since I'm new to this embroidery thing I couldn't figure out how to get the pattern onto the piece of cloth. I tried carbon paper but that failed so I just ended up drawing it on freehand. It didn't turn out too bad and the ink leaked through to the other side so I followed the pattern on that side :) It worked out swell.

And this would be the end result. I ended up sort of modifying my original idea by giving it a smaller stomach and actually adding color to the bird. I was originally planning on making the bird completely outlined in dark slate blue but I think this turned out nicely :)
