A.M. Eye Candy – Embroidered Black Forest Cuckoo Clock


Last month, doe-c-doe posted some teaser pictures of a project on which she was working. She’s revealed the completed project this morning, and it is stunning! I also love that she shared some of the creative process being the piece.

I went online & found images of real clocks I liked, than combined all the features I liked into one clock, which I drew in illustrator. I cut out all the colored fabric, than appliquéd it onto the brown fabric – stretched the whole thing on a 14″ hoop {largest I’ve ever used & not as awkward as I thought it would be} then embroidered the detail in. I used foam core to back the whole thing, then finally added the clock mechanism. from the very tip of the house to the bottom of the lowest pinecone “weight” it is 24″ – the house is 11.5″ from top to bottom & 10.5″ across.
