Textile Illustration

‘Love Me’ (2013). Woman in a summer dress.

Lately, I’ve become obsessed with freehand embroidery illustration and textile art. Naturally, me being me, I thought to give it a go myself. I didn’t draw anything out before hand – I went straight to sketching with needle and thread. I used grey felt as my base, cotton and silk thread and cotton fabric scraps for the dress, all of which I had in my sewing stash. I think I like the way it turned out! The final work measures approximately 8″ x 10″.
