Today I have been working on designing a new range of products inspired by birds. Im going to be producing pictures, cushions and lavender sachets. When I start a new collection I begin by working in my sketchbook and getting down some ideas which I will then later develop. Having these initial sketches helps me to decide what threads, fabric and most importantly what stitches I will use. The above images are quick sketches I have done. Watch this space to see them developed into embroideries.
