Machine embroidery takes me way back to my degree when I had access to beautiful Irish sewing machines. Many days were spent busting out some free hand embroidery drawings which is probably why I am drawn to this stitched piece by dA user Tenebrion95! Unfortunately I couldn’t find much more about him but I’d love to see more of these fabric collage/embroidered doodles. What an interesting mix of fabrics, folds, lines and colours.
