Chloe Owens is an artist/crafter who specialises in appliqué, free hand machine embroidery using salvaged fabrics she has collected over the years. She produces cushions, soft toys, canvasses, greeting cards, and t-shirts, sewing together a mixture of fabrics of different prints, colours and styles, and then free hand sews on top using a sewing machine to create layers of stitching in different colours. I think that her work is beautiful and interesting, and I thought that it fits in with the work that I am doing now, with re-using fabrics and quilting techniques.
She also has a book on Amazon that you can buy now!
