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'm setting up individual listings for each products that you can purchase:
Pet portrait coin purse
Pet portrait project bag
Pet portrait hoop art
You can contact me via the contact form and let me know which product you would like to commission a pet portrait onto.
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.
