I love the colors in the peacock feather. I have had this idea to come up with a peacock feather pattern for a LONG time... at least 6 months. After our move and things finally settling down, I was able to sit down and come up with the pattern. I had to make MANY different versions before I was satisfied with the accuracy and neatness of the pattern. I hope you LOVE it!

Make a whole bunch and sew them together to make amazing gifts. I have seen them made into earrings, headpiece, or blankets. Post links in the comments of things you've made, I want to see!
If you are having trouble figuring out the pattern, you can purchase my 16 page step-by-step photo tutorial on etsy.
2/4/16 Edit: WELCOME DIYSMARTLY FRIENDS! I saw my pattern was linked on a page referring to a beautiful peacock feather blanket. Please notice that this pattern is for the motif only, not the blanket, nor is it the same pattern from the video posted on their page. The blanket pattern can be purchased from the person who designed the blanket. I only designed the single motif. Thank you!
