The Tiger Who Came to Tea - 2022

By Laura Vivanco on

This tiger is from Judith Kerr's The Tiger Who Came to Tea. He's trying to finish drinking all the water in the house, and the last of it's in this kettle (a metal button). I used tulle, various layers of padding and then embroidered on top (though the tail and topmost arm were mostly completed separately and then stitched on when they were ready). The face was embroidered with one-strand cotton thread, with the rest of the body in 2-strand.
