Begin your piece of work by creating an interesting background with a collage of light coloured fabrics including some that have been painted with gesso. Use simple templates to help position your badgers, foxes, stoats and ferrets and other creatures. Bring your woodland animals to life with an eclectic mix of fabrics collaged together and developed further with free machine and hand stitching. Include trees in your composition which might be a simple stitched outline or a mix of fabric and stitch. Use vintage fabric and lace finds to add lovely texture and details which will be free machined into place.
Your work will be suitable for framing or as a hanging.
