Have a go!

Much of Francesca’s work is about how embroidery can be used as a means of embellishing an existing garment. It might be done for purely decorative reasons, but as this short film shows, it can also be done to cover up damage to fabric and create an attractive feature that extends the garment’s life.

If you’re got a piece of clothing that has some minor damage, this might give you inspiration for how you can repair it quite easily – even if you’ve never embroidered before! So, have a go! And feel free to tag us (@fifecontemp) if you’d like to share what you re-make!
