Embroidery

Free-motion machine embroidery over a base material, often with recycled paper to set shading. To create these pictures I ‘draw’ with the sewing machine.

Stitching back and forth on the base material often wrinkles the fabric. But the images can be cut out (just like shop-bought embroidered patterns) and appliqued onto another base for a smooth finish – e.g. Cuddles and her Kittens.
