Vibrant Hoop Embroidery Animals


Fiber artist Laura McGarrity creates absolutely amazing hoop embroidery animals that are sewn from brightly colored yarn that looks like paint. Each animal is made using different types of embroidery techniques and specific colors to make the image as realistic as possible, especially when the animal is in action.

McGarrity told My Modern Met that she likes to put her own spin on such a traditional subject.

Animals are a very traditional subject, so I like to add my own “flavor” to a room by reinterpreting them with different palettes. I still feel like I’m learning the craft, so I love creating things using a variety of stitches and techniques.
