Free machining onions


The idea of this piece of embroidery came from the inspiration of harvesting. The development came from drawing vegetables. As the drawing was only quick i just focused on creating the most significant marks from either an onion, broccoli or carrot.

Once completed, i took what i thought were the most interesting marks. This happened to be the onion, from the onion i only took the top of it and then played around with what could potentially become a print or small piece of embroidery.

Once finalised another interpretation of my initial onion drawing, i then took it into a stitch workshop and decided to use free machining purely for the fact that i believe this stitch technique is best to create repetition and continuous lines and mark making on fabric. Although i do believe this works well in stitch i also think that print would work better. A screen print would be able to create the continuous lines but would make the final outcome tidier and more presentable which then could be taken through to either interior or fashion with potentially an element of stitch.
