By compairson to last week’s post and the scale of the embroideries that we produced for the patches, this little job may seem insignificant. However we can’t help but get excited about pieces like this whether we are producing 2 pieces or 200 of them in the end.Hawthorne & Heaney on Roses London Hand Embroidery

We were approached and asked to use this tudor rose image to create a pair of freestanding embroidered embelums to go onto a bespoke cape which one of our tailors was working on. By adding raisings into the piece we were able to give the piece some body despite the fact that they are not onto a fabric base.

You can see from the scale of the hand just how little they really are.

Here they are in situ where they will get to live against this gorgeous velvet collar. Aren’t they just so cute?!?
