The embroideries are all designed and hand-sewn by me. I first create the designs on paper or digitally then convert them to fabric. You can choose images which relate to yourself, such as favourite films, pets, dates or places. Before transferring the images to the clothing, we can work together to decide on the final design, its position on the garment and its size. Below is an explanation of the process and some examples of potential designs.
It is possible to use a range of typefaces using embroidery, combining colours and styles to create a striking image. Lettering is varied and can take from 2 hours, for a simple cursive style, up to 4 or 5 hours for a more complex, personalised typeface such as "Guay Del Paraguay'.
A small design like this would take roughly 2 - 3 hours from the application of the design onto the fabric to the finished embroidery. This size works well both among a collection of embroideries and as a single, eye-catching design on the breast pocket of a t-shirt.
Large or detailled designs
Larger designs can measure up to between 5 and 8cm and take 4 - 6 hours to complete depending on the level of detail. You can choose designs which relate to you- this piece is from one of my favourite films, Leon the Professional.
