This gorgeous hand decorated grey wooden clock has a 100% cotton fox and free motion embroidered flowers. Ideal gift for a fox or nature lover, or as a treat for yourself.
This wooden clock features a decorated back plate featuring a 100% cotton fox and free-machine embroidered flowers.
It is a lovely sized feature piece for any room in the house.
I start the process by choosing a fabric for the fox to match the green mottled Moda cotton background. The fox is hand drawn and cut out before being free motion appliquéd onto the backing fabric and a tiny black bead is hand sewn for the eye.
The next stage is to add grass and flowers to compliment the colours of the fabrics. This is done by free motion machine embroidery, think of using the sewing machine needle as a pencil and you will have an idea of the process. It is all done by eye, no computer programmes involved, so every one produced is unique.
The next stage is to back the decorative panel to a stabiliser, it is then cut to the size of the clock back plate. The panel is adhered to the clock backplate, the clock mechanism is replaced and the clock reassembled.
The finished clock is approximately 24cm high, plus a 4 cm handle, 20 cm wide and 6 cm deep and comes wrapped in tissue.
