This grumpy little duck was hand drawn in thread using free motion machine embroidery and a very steady hand.
Incorporating different thread colours and scraps of recycled fabrics, drawn out using freehand machine embroidery; using a special foot on a well loved sewing machine, I move the fabric under the needle to draw onto fabric in thread so these embroideries all take on a life of their own, and this little chap has buckets of character.
The mallard stands just under 3" tall and is sewn on calico to a 5x7" mounted card, ready to purchase unframed.
The backed embroidery will come packed with a hard board back inside a cellophane envelope for safety.
Handmade in the Kentish countryside by Francesca Kemp.
