Q&A with Mousemad
Looks like all hand embroidery, but the Technique says machine... ? Would love to learn if it's hand work!! :)
hi, thank you for your comment. All of the embroidery on the outside is done on a machine but the inside garden is a mixture of machine using soluble backing or hand embroidered stump work. if you open up all the hidden comments you will see the first couple are my more detailed explanation of the work.
This box lid is so beautiful. I want to try to make a Tudor styled box. My Husband has made the carcass for me now I have to cover it and I think it will take me years to finish it. I have made two little people to go on the doors and am in the process of embroidering the fronts of the draws.
Sounds fabulous - I would love to see it when you've done!
