Handmade from cotton and paper using your photos, this beautiful bespoke piece of embroidered artwork makes a lovely personalised wedding or anniversary gift.
Every picture is unique as you can specify words, skin tone, hair colour, hair style and clothing style.
Quirky and unusual, this mixed media picture is handmade to order by Zoe Gibbons on her vintage sewing machine.
It makes a thoughtful gift for a newly married couple as a way to remember their big day. Also a great first or second anniversary gift as it is made from paper and cotton.
Choose any wording you like, such as 'Sam and Olivia, 21st July 2015' or 'Mr and Mrs Heaven' or 'Tom, Let's grow old together & still hold hands'). You may choose up to 45 characters per line allowing you to write a personal message if you wish.
The words are printed over 1 or 2 lines below the figure embroidery as shown above.
You can send a photo of the couple to help with getting the details right but it's not essential - I can make up the artwork using the details supplied by you in the drop down boxes opposite.
The bride and groom can be made in their wedding dress or in their everyday clothing - you can give details to get the outfits just right!
Also possible to make with 2 women or 2 men - just message on ordering.
All artwork arrives in a cream mount to fit a 10 x 8 inch frame (widely available in most shops). There is also a choice of frames for an additional cost. You can choose from white, black or wood effect. It can be displayed as wall-hung artwork or a freestanding picture.
Free gift wrapping is also offered, and the gift can be sent directly to the recipient. You can choose this at checkout.
The picture is created on (and into) white card by free hand machine embroidery, essentially, drawing with a sewing machine!
To make the image I use thread, material, watercolours, googly eyes and a fabric flower bouquet.
The internal picture 16 x 18cm.
Frame size is 20 x 25cm (8 x 10 inch frame).
