Inspiration For Embroidery - Animals

More wonderfulness from Inspiration For Embroidery by Constance Howard published in 1966. She looks at animals in color and in the line drawings that inspire. Get busy and show us what you create! 
"A hedgehog worked in various metal threads and padded gold kid." By Jane Page
"Various birds, simplified from reality into semi-geometric shapes."
"Decorative fishes based on the drawing of the carp."
"Cats, simplified for design. Horses from Greek pottery in the Louve. Primitive animal on a pot in the Louve."


  1. These are incredible! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I know! She makes me want to go stitch something, or paint something, or just look at things in a new way.
