Here are some samples which I created using applique and embroidery, following a Nautical theme – aimed at young girls aged between 2 and 5.
Hand embroidery is something I have always been very passionate about, ever since my first year at university I would embellish into my print samples with intricate detailing and beading.
Since graduating I find that with tight design deadlines and commercial constraints it is an art which I rarely have time to indulge in.
However several weeks ago I was lucky enough to be given an internship at the prestigious ‘Hand and Lock’ – School of Embroidery, where on my final day I was allowed to work on my own project. Looking through pages of forgotten drawings in my sketchbook I was able to recycle a few ideas!
