Pet portrait commissions
Commission your own unique pet portrait, embroidered onto any of my products.
Have a look in my shop to see the products that I am currently making.
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:
To make the ordering process easier I've set up individual listings for each products that you can purchase here:
If you have any questions you can contact me via the contact form .
Once you have been in touch, 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.
Choose a Harris Tweed colour
Pick a colour for the background from the swatches below. If you're not sure, pick a couple and I can advise if they will work well once I've seen the photo of your pet.
