This little guy can’t help but make you smile, he is so cute!

The squirrel is worked over felt padding in silk shading and then needle sculpted to create his life like body. The fluffy tail is made using velvet stitch. He is surrounded with three dimensional leaves, berries and acorns representing the European Countryside.
Traditional stumpwork techniques of wired edges are explored as well as covering beads with thread. Susan will also share the intricacies of achieving the perfect finish to your stumpwork embroidery A mixture of silk and DMC cottons are used in this piece. Design size 16cm x 16cm.
