** I'm no longer taking Christmas orders - commissions for 2021 are welcome! **
Commission your own unique pet portrait, embroidered onto a Harris Tweed coin purse. Please allow up to 3 weeks for your order.
Coin purses measures approximately 11.5 x 10.5 cm. They are lined with cotton and have a zip closure.
The official Harris Tweed orb label is sewn on the back.
Using a photograph as reference, I hand draw and cut the animal design out of felt. The pieces are then embroidered onto a Harris Tweed background using free motion embroidery. This technique is like drawing with a sewing machine - similar to painting a portrait, only using threads instead of paint. No embroidery programmes are used, and the intricate texture and shading is all stitched by eye.
How to order:
After purchase I will contact you via email to confirm your order. You will need to email at least three high quality photographs to use as reference. Preferably one should be taken outside, or in a well lit room, as light is very important so that I'm able to see the true colours of your pet.
Let me know which colours you like from the swatches image, and once I see the photo I can advise which one would work best with your pet's colours.
