Inspiration/Tutorial: Sarah Terry

image source, 'Home Invasion' hand embroidery on reclaimed linen 

Textile Artist Sarah Terry who works predominantly using hand embroidery. Her current work explores the concept of 'disturbing domesticity' using place mats and doilies and stitching bugs, insects and spiders onto them. She describes the insects as 'a metaphor for the malaise that can lie beneath the facade of a seemingly happy home'. 

She's made an amazing tutorial to make your own insect embroidery! You can download the worksheets and templates here
