C – Celtic Knotwork -

Since my art college days, I have always been fascinated by celtic knotwork. At first I hand couched threads and yarn into intricate woven patterns. But since I acquired an embroidery machine a few years ago, I have been working on lots of celtic knotwork embroidery designs, digitised and used them as details in the bags I make. Its quite a long process getting each part of the design to look as if it is going under or over itself. See first photo.Printed celtic knotwork fabrics are very thin on the ground so to say I was very happy when I received a newsletter with the latest design from a company I use, is an understatement . And in green (my favourite colour!) I had to have some! I bought two prints (and a toner which I used for landscape designs... more on that later!) shown in the second photo. Again , I used the inkle loom to weave matching straps, as I did for the large 'Festival' cross body bags I made with a fold over top and celtic embroidery concealing the magnetic fastening. As freemotion embroidery is my passion, I have created some bags – the hip bag in the last photo- with celtic swirls, I really must do more of this!
