Stitch Sketches 

These Stitch Sketches are created using free motion embroidery on the sewing machine. This is a technique very like drawing, using one continuous line. 

To create the design in free motion embroidery, I move the fabric in different directions while the needle is stitching. Because it is a free hand technique, every piece of work is unique. Some pictures also have touches of colour which are added afterwards either using Inktense ink or fabric paint.

I also take commissions for Stitch Sketches, working from your photos of places or things which have a special meaning for you. Click here for more details.
