My process of designing is to draw out the design and then work it out onto the fabric.  I create a basic framework and use this to piece together the base.  Then start adding applique and embroidery.  Some is done by hand and some is done by machine.  I like to mix up the techniques to suit the look I am going for.

This gallery showcases some of my designs and the embroidered detail.
