OOT gift bag

I want to add some sort of defining detail to our OOT gift bags, so obviously I thought of cranes. I stitched the outline of a crane with some embroidery thread, and I also drew the same outline with a silver pen. I used a crane logo (last picture) for the design. I could also use a crane stencil (pic 5) and use this tutorial to have a filled in image on the bag instead of just an outline:

My question is, which option do you like best? (a) thread (b) silver outline (c) stencil (probably in purple or green ink)

Thanks for helping me!

I like the stencil if you can fill it in instead of just an outline

I like the stencil as well. The other 2 you barely notice. And the stencil will stand out more. :)

I like the stencil because I feel like it will stand out more against the bag.
