A Gift For My Niece
Now that I have passed this gift on to my brother it is safe to post this image without spoiling the surprise.
I created this personalised appliqué and embroidery artwork to co-ordinate with a set of beautiful hot air balloon fairy lights destined for the nursery. The balloons are made from bright and glossy polyester fabrics with co-ordinating machine embroidery detail on top. The clouds are a really soft brushed cotton secured with satin stitch embroidery. The text and the birds are hand-embroidered using regular sewing thread to give a fine finish.
Welcome to the world Franchesca!
