Description

Handcrafted Harris Tweed textile art, with Liberty cotton appliquéd hare and free motion embroidered flowers. Ideal gift for a hare or nature lover, or as a treat for yourself.

This handcrafted textile art features a free motion appliquéd liberty fabric hare on a deep red tweed, with embroidered flowers and grasses.

I start the process by choosing a liberty fabric to match the Harris Tweed; which I purchase directly from weavers on the Isle of Harris. The hare is hand drawn and cut out before being free motion appliquéd onto the tweed and a tiny black bead is hand sewn for the eye. A tiny bee is hand embroidered to finish the picture.

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 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 everyone produced is unique.

Once the exterior is finished it is put in a free standing frame with wadding behind the picture to show the textures of the art to its best advantage. There is no glass in the frame.

The finished framed picture is approx. 11cm wide, 10cm tall and 3.5cm deep and comes wrapped in tissue.
