Shop Announcement:

Welcome to Sylvie's Sewing Room.

My textile work is all hand stitched using a free-style combination of stitches that I call "drawing with threads".

If you have any particular questions or would like something designed and created specially for you, please get in touch - commissions welcome!

I photograph everything in natural light, which is sometimes a bit ... gloomy here in West Wales. So bear that in mind, and of course colours may vary from screen to screen as you know.

Postage is first class Royal Mail, packaging is recycled and recyclable where appropriate.

Please enjoy looking... and stay safe everyone.

Fox - hand stitched picture

Fox picture stitched by hand.

This study of a fox has been carefully embroidered by hand with individual strands of embroidery thread. The colours and contours are built up using a method I call Drawing with Threads, which is very time consuming but allows lots of detail. I’ve used silver thread for the whiskers, which catch the light, and there’s a glint in the eye of this clever fox.

I photographed the framed picture without the glass for clarity, in natural light, but remember that screens do vary. The overall frame measures 16x16cms and the stitched piece of work is 5x5cms. With the glass in place it’s ready to display.

An eye catching feature for any home...


Foxes have an interesting and varied folklore, but everyone seems to agree that they are clever. I wanted to capture some of that intelligence and awareness.
