Hand-Embroidered Ferret


I have been looking at some illustrations by Jenny Hart recently and it inspired me to go out and do some hand embroidery. This ferret is from my sketchbook, a drawing that developed into the ferret toy that I made. I just traced the image in pencil straight onto some material. The stitches were thick enough to cover the pencil marks. It was addictive and I'm in the process of stitching out another character from my sketchbook.

I like this alot Marisa! good to see hand embroidery, and the ferret design is really nice, it has a kind of lovely 'old fashioned' feel to it.
