10a      Speckled Trout

This fabulous Speckled Trout would make a wonderful gift for a fisherman. Learn to do a silk transfer of the design and stitch into it with exciting composite stitches and subtle shading. The head is a combination of stumpwork techniques, made separately on a background fabric and applied last. Spend time and enjoying an Or Nué variation for the tail fin and needle-lace for the pectoral and pelvic fins. Have fun creating a fly out of mixed media, ribbons and stitches. The finished trout is approximately 28cm x 15cm, background fabric size 45cm x 40cm

Kit Cost: $120

 

 

 

 

10b   Cape White Eye                                                                                    

The Cape White Eye is a comical little bird indigenous to the Western Cape, South Africa. The mixed media and traditional embroidery is combined with understanding the charm of working with wool and silk chiffon. Unusual felting techniques enhance the tactile quality of the little bird and the delicate foliage. Fine embroidery stitches are the jewel in the crown when the whole design comes together. The little bird design can be made into a gorgeous book cover, picture or be used on the lid of a box or as an album cover.  The finished embroidery is approximately 16cm x 16cm, background fabric size approx. 35cm x 30cm
