Based originally on the passion fruit, this project evolved to a collection of natural and textural elements. I wanted to create different textures by mixing techniques and materials, and also exploit lacy and light surfaces. I used felting, free hand machine embroidery and hand embroidery. Each element has its own individuality but also links with others. The incorporation of natural elements such as pomegranate shell, passion fruits and seeds, with stitch and felt gives a living aspect to the design.
