hand stitching with machine embroidery thread

stitch it!

I wanted to embroidery this little octopus as soon as I spotted him on a poster for the ‘Carefully Planned Festival.’ After stitching him, I was delighted to find out that the illustrator – Amy Tidmarsh – studied embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University!

I used machine embroidery thread and love how thin and clean the lines are!

I'm a dye hard fan of textile history and come from a family of crafters. I'm interested in learning more about embroidery by trying out age old techniques with a contemporary twist. I hope you enjoy looking through my projects and that they inspire you to give stitching a try!
