‘Little Owl’ embroidery hoop art


‘Little Owl’ is a textile hoop art, featuring an owl in a 6 inch embroidery hoop backed with felt for a smooth finish. It comes with a ribbon hanger, which can be removed if you prefer to prop it up instead.

It is made from an acrylic painting onto cotton fabric, which I then sew over with threads and my sewing machine, gradually building up the layers until I am happy with the way it looks. I then cut it out and applique it to the background fabric before framing it with the hoop. I have included a photo collage of how she was created so you can see the process from sketch to finished piece.

It is very tactile and the beauty of the hoop is that you can touch it as much as you want!

Enjoy your textile hoop art anywhere in your home, but hang out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.

Please note that this hoop is made to order and you need to allow time (2 – 3 days) for it to be created. I will email you to let you know when it has been shipped.

Little Owl was inspired by a photograph by Ben Nicholson, a very talented photographer, who has also inspired many of my wildlife portraits. These tiny owls seem to have such huge character and attitude. I am always drawn to the eyes of an animal, and this Little owl has a very piercing look. I can imagine her disciplining her babies and scolding her husband for making a mess in the nest!

She would make a perfect gift and if you would like to have this, or any art from Into The Woods, sent directly to your loved one just email me and I will arrange it. It will be beautifully packaged (as are all my orders), and I will include a handwritten card with your message inside for no extra cost.
