Snowy Plover Freehand Machine Embroidered portrait


This bird portrait has been created by free hand stitching on a sewing machine! Otherwise, I draw with my sewing machine. There is absolutely No programing involved. I draw each portrait first as an ink drawing, and use that to trace guidelines of the image on the canvas using a fabric marker that fades or washes away. Stitched in black on heavy duty cotton duck canvas fabric and is stretched in a 6” wooden embroidery hoop, ready to hang! Canvas is adhered with heavy duty two sided tape. If the hoop warps and the canvas becomes uptight, you can pull away and re-stretch with the tape.
Great present for your any Twitcher or birder!
Makes a great house warming or present to yourself.

This portrait as seen is available Now and can be shipped quickly.

These also look beautiful as a grouping! Can be custom on a different color background or color of thread. Allow up to two weeks, for delivery. Please convo me if you need it earlier.

Each portrait is signed and dated along with the name of bird on the inside of the embroidery hoop.

This portrait is in an 6” hoop or can be framed in a black round picture frame.
Canvas is stretched and attached with double stick tape to a 6” wooden disc then backed and glued to another 6” wooden disc. Framed in an embroidery hoop. Back has bird name, signed and dated. A Metal D-ring is then attached for hanging.

Proudly Made in Baltimore, MD, in a pet and smoke-free studio, by one woman, one at a time!
