Lily Loves: Mother Eagle embroidery . . .

These intricately embroidered pendants are the work of Worthing-based creative, Mother Eagle (aka Katie). Katie designs and makes all her patterns by hand before stitching in miniature using threads and fabrics handed down to her and often dating back to the 1950s. With stitches often measuring just a millimeter in length, each piece involves hours and hours of meticulous work under magnifying lamps, with Katie using fine English needles to ensure a neat finish. I particularly love the swirling details on the skull pendants pictured below - especially as Halloween is fast approaching! If you like what you see, be sure to check out the Mother Eagle website, Twitter and Pinterest- details listed below.
