Stitchy Snippets - All creatures great and small
Happy New Year Stitchers! I hope you like creepy crawlies. Here is a collection of Claire Moynihan's embroidered insects. Claire is a UK based artist and her affinity with nature led to her specialization of insect textile art. These beautiful little bugs are constructed with felting and stump work and embellished with embroidery. Both life-size and realistic these tiny creatures form an 'embroidered' entomological collection that could sit happily among a natural history exhibit.
Hi, I'm Julia - an embroidery enthusiast based in Amsterdam with a lifelong passion for textiles. I like to mix things up by combining different techniques and mediums - my origami styled dress won the Hand & Lock embroidery prize. Join me on my exploration of embroidery with mixed media and fibre art.
