Emily Conroy

Feathers are the main focus for Emily’s designs looking at reflection, repetition and shadowing. Small sections of hidden beauty seen within the feathers are developed into embroidery through different shapes and textures. Iridescent thread and textured mohair with various stitch types offer a quirky edge to the work. The contrast between lightweight, fluffy feathers and harsher materials is represented through material choices. The end products are bespoke soft toys, designed for decorative use only. The pattern has been created and developed to offer a unique product that is different to the standard soft toy. The embroidery allows the soft toys to stand out and enhances their desirability.
