This vintage blue cloth has been embroidered by hand with a floral design within a trowel.
The original trowel shape was taken from my grandad’s gardening tools and the floral pattern is from a 1950s printed embroidery design which belonged to my granny. The embroidery is hand stitched by me in fine linen thread using running stitch and french knots. This piece is mounted on card ready for you to frame.
This embroidery is 40cm square and mounted on cream board, 45cm square.

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
