‘A Ferret, A Fox and a Badger Go Walking’-with Suzette Smart *New 2023

£150

Create your own woodland story in fabric and machine/hand stitch with characterful animals like a badger or a fox and beautiful trees for them to hide behind. Plenty of room to include some vintage fabric and lace details too.

Description

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.
(Suggested size, no bigger than a 32cm square.)
